Birds Of Passage ‎(CD, Album). Birds of Passage" - The first of two danceable tracks on the album (the other being "Continuum" which will slowly grow on you, trust me) and the obvious single. Check out the video for the band looking as serious as a migrant family out of the Old Norse Sagas. World Without End" - "mythical, like a dream" (how could I state it better?)

Birds Of Passage by Bel Canto, released 01 September 1990 1. Look 3 2. Dewy Fields 3. Continuum 4. The Suffering 5. The Glassmaker 6. Picnic On The Moon 7. Intravenous 8. Oyster 9. Birds Of Passage 10. A Shoulder To The Wheel 11. Time Without End In this second album (1990), the Norwegian trio further develop their unique approach and explore new directions

Whether it's due to their increasing confidence in performing or just a decision on the part of the band, the effect has helped Bel Canto become an even more distinct unit. There are still times on Birds where other bands are called to mind quite strongly, to a higher degree than on White-Out
