The reviews of Northumbria are starting to trickle in. Here are links to a few:
Music Street Journal review
Zero Day Rock review
Again, many thanks to Nick Katona at Melodic Revolution Records. He's been a huge asset to the promotion of Northumbria and as a result the "back catalog effect" has created a renewed interest in the first album (Ron Fuchs of ProgNaut.com recommends the 2008 remastered version).
