4 stars Actually it's very hard for me to rate any album by this great seminal band (which is one of my all-time favs) starting from their very first one, here in review, until let's say 1975 (or "Too old.." which had been their first true flaw IMHO) lower than four stars since they all have been just excellent and moreover they passed the test of time very well and don't sound any dated if listened to nowadays. Though being still strongly blues-oriented their debut revealed nonetheless already significant progressive leanings and covered different music genres like folk, jazz and folk. Surely the even better and more sophisticated things are still to come from them later on but there are already many amazing tracks on here like the bluesy and flute-drenched ones "My Sunday Feeling" and "Beggar's Farm", the jazzy Kirk-inspired "Serenade To A Cuckoo", "Dharma For One" (with awesome flute and drums), the foot-stomping "Cat's Squirrel" (featuring a great guitar and drum solo) and the all-time classic "A Song For Jeffrey". Although the remaining four songs are less exciting without being bad at all there's just too much brilliant stuff on here to give less than 4 stars if you ask me!
