Narnia from Sweden is back with album number three. “Desert Land” sees a rawer and rougher edge to the band, but the roots of the band are not interfered. Still you can hear obvious Rainbow influence in the so-called neo-classical sound, which fits the singer Christian Liljegren’s voice perfectly. Here and there the guy actually reminds a bit of Khan from Kamelot, while Narnia uses synth a bit differently than the Americans. Carl-Johan Grimmark brings my thoughts to a more famous exile-Swedish guitar player, whose originality also is very doubtful, but overall I think Grimmark does a decent job. He even calms down beautifully in the instrumental “Misty Morning”, like a Gary Moore at the time when he didn’t depress us with his bluesy roots. This is simply recommended.
