Titania is the first of two releases which are the brainchild of Canadian multi-instrumentalist Michael Turner, the second is released under the name of Angelmark. Titania, though, is a song-based affair, topped off with the sweet vocals of Mandy Cousins. Although Turner himself compares the music to Yellow6 this is on the much lighter side of melancholy which even edges into New Age territory on occasions; in fact 'Radiance' isn't a million miles away from Clannad but in Titania's case this is not a bad thing actually. Sometimes - as on the finale 'Blue Iris Eternal' - the music drifts by too innocuously with the tunes not quite strong enough to lodge in the brain. Yet Turner reveals a gift for Cocteau Twins-inspired dreaminess on 'Knowing And Not Caring' and 'Pale Sister' is genuinely mysterious and haunting. This is a tasteful and technically accomplished album rather than a great one but certainly merits the occasional listen.
