Inspired by Marion Zimmer Bradley's Arthurian legend novel MISTS OF AVALON, Llewelleyn's MYSTS OF AVALON is a similarly mythic journey. As he did on his popular MOONLORE, Llewellyn creates a dreamy, drifting world of sound with synthesizer, guitar, light percussion, and various instruments all working together to create a mystical world that envelops the listener. Yet the song titles--"Merlyn and the Crossing;" "The Dragon's Breath"--recreate the Arthurian story, conjuring images to go with the swirling, imaginative music. Fans of Llewellyn won't want to pass this up, but MYSTS OF AVALON should appeal to anyone with a soft spot for mythology or for mystical New Age ambient music.
