"Loneliness" received a very good review in the british prog mag New Horizons. You can read it on our "reviews" section, or with the following link:
"All things considered this is a remarkably mature opening album for 'Dawn' and for me at any rate it contains little, if anything, that fails to please.
I sincerely hope that Dawn will be able to maintain the impressive form they have shown on this, their first album, and I for one look forward to more and better things to come. If there is such a thing as justice in the world, then Dawn are certainly destined to become a well known name in the years ahead."
