3 stars Gypsy's second output "In The Garden" had been similar to their debut still in a very interesting and highly appealing (at least to me) proto Prog mold, maybe even with more organ sound and more rocking. Not that much had changed in their style, only the string arrangements from their fisrt one had disappeared though. Outstanding track is here of course the 12-min piece "As Far As You Can See" sounding highly versatile with several mood and tempo shifts and not lengthy at all as it was the case with "Dead And Gone". Second side of the original vinyl starts in a more mellow and acoustic vein with part one of "Here (In The Garden)" which is completed with a fantastic drum/percussion solo leading over to part two returning to a more up-tempo and rocking pace. This two-parted track is certainly the highlight of side two and the remaining two ones pale a bit besides it I've to say without being true failures. Overall this one might still be a worthy purchase for any collector of proto Prog and I'd rather give it a rating of 3 stars. Not really essential though and only about 70 percent of its almost 37 minutes running time are actually great!
