4 stars Imagine it is 1972, all that youthful spirituality and journeys of self discovery. Young people did it in abundence in those days. Whether it was an offshoot of Tolkien, a mad Topographic Ocean zealot or a heavily influenced Carlos Castaneda spiritual awakening, this conscious state was still alive in people and the music. It was largely positive energy flowing in every direction. Caravanserai captures the same elements and themes of this spiritual path many people took. Whether it was Dakar, India, Mexico or Findhorn in the North of Scotland, this album conveys the feel and message in mostly one long musical take. CS increases the lineup substantially to help deliver this wonderful music. It has a really slow build on ' Eternal Caravan of Reincarnation' but by 'Look Up ( See whats coming down )' you know there is something special going on here. Other great tracks include ' All The Love Of The Universe' and the epic closer ' Every Step Of The Way'. Borboletta followed Caravanserai and that album too was excellent. 4.5 stars makes this album an excellent contributor to the genre of progressive music. Arguably classical music too!!
