4 stars Another change in the style of the band, much needed after the mediocre "Too Old to Rock n Roll, too Young To Die" They go partially back to their roots, with more maturity and a heavier emphasis on the soft acoustic folk feel. Anderson was aging quickly after buying a farm and living in the rural scotland, which certainly rubbed off on the product of this record.

Excellent writing and lyrics as always, songs like Jack in the Green and Velvet Green being my favourite. There are also some mediocre songs, The Whistler and Cup of Wonder coming to mind. Rich acoustic settings and the additon of David Palmer on composition and synthesizer are the strong points.

The best album in the folk period, and also their best from 1974-. Reccomended for fans of the first three albums.
