Knapp zwei Jahre nach ihrer letzten Veröffentlichung „Luna“ kommt ein weiteres Konzeptalbum von FAUN heraus: „Midgard“, was die germanische Bezeichnung für die Erde ist. Thematisch geht es mal zu den Kelten („Lughnasad), den Wikingern („Odin“) oder es steht die Natur im Mittelpunkt. Im Großen und Ganzen eine Reise in den von uns aus gesehen geografischen Norden.
Das wohl bereits vor der Veröffentlichung bekannteste Stück des Albums ist „Federkleid“. Mit diesem Lied beginnt die Reise durch Midgard auf des Vögels Schwingen. Es lädt zum ausgelassenen und sorgenfreien Tanzen ein, was auch im bereits veröffentlichten Video zu sehen ist.
Das bereits 2011 auf der CD „Eden“ veröffentlichte Lied „Alba II“ wurde erneut aufgenommen und unterscheidet sich sehr vom Original. War es auf „Eden“ ein ruhiges, melancholisches Stück, das von Olivers Stimme getragen wurde, ist es hier schneller, tanzbarer und fröhlicher. Neu ist auch die Melodie des deutschen Volksliedes „Nun treiben wir den Winter aus“, die in das Lied integriert wurde. Je nach Stimmung sind beide Versionen auf jeden Fall hörenswert.
Mystisch geht es weiter mit „Nacht des Nordens“. Bereits auf einigen Konzerten haben FAUN bewiesen, dass dieses Lied perfekt für einen nebligen Auftritt der Band ist. Der lange instrumentelle Part mit Flöte und Drehleier erinnert ein wenig an das bekannte „Iyansa“. Im Anschluss kommt eins der ruhigeren Stücke des Albums, „McBeth“, bei dem Olivers ruhiger Gesang von Harfe, Cello und Flöte getragen wird.
Und auch der zweite Sänger im Bunde hat wieder ein eigenes Lied bekommen. Bei „Brandan“ singt Stephan die Geschichte des seefahrenden irischen Mönches, der den Meeresgott Manannan Mac Lir um Hilfe bittet. Auch diese Melodie ist nicht unbekannt. So hat Stephan sie auf Konzerten bei seinem Drehleier-Solo schon oft gespielt.
Eine kleine Überraschung ist das Lied „Odin“. Zusammen mit WARDRUNA ist ein Lied über den Göttervater Odin entstanden, wie er die 16 Runen empfing. WARDRUNA, die als Co-Komponisten des Soundtracks der TV-Serie „Vikings“ bekannt wurden, vertonen im Lied eine Passage aus der Edda in ihrem typischen Stil. So hat das fast sechs Minuten lange Lied einen klaren FAUN und WARDRUNA teil und kann auch als zwei unabhängige Lieder wahrgenommen werden, bis diese am Ende zu einem verschmelzen.

Eine weitere kleine Überraschung ist die Neuvertonung der bekannten traditionellen „Rabenballade“. In Kombination mit einem bretonischen Tanz und einer neuen Textpassage ist das Lied doch nicht so abgenutzt, wie der Titel es vermuten lässt. Thematisch immer noch aktuell und musikalisch kurzweilig kann es sich ohne schlechtes Gewissen in die vielen Interpretationen des alten Stücks einreihen.
Mythen und Sagen, Bräuche und Natur versuchen FAUN uns auf diesem Album näher zu bringen. Musikalisch ein abwechslungsreiches Album, das mit zwei herausragenden Gastmusikern, Maya Friedmann (Cello) und Efren Lopez (Oud), bereits bekannte Gesichter von der letzten Tour aufweisen kann. Auf diesem Album sollte für Fans der ersten Stunde wie auch neuere Begeisterte etwas zum Träumen und Tanzen dabei sein.
