2 stars Trees are a rather weak band. They borrow heavily from other folk rock bands, most obviously The Fairport Convention and sound very second rate. Yes, this album is not devoid of good songs and arrangements. For instance Fool is a good song and the bass playing is strong throughout. However the singer appears to be trying to emulate Sandy Denny alot and suffers for it as her voice simply isn't as strong. Furthermore the guitar is stodgy and some of the jamming parts are very boring. Some of the guitar work on Murdoch is also very similar to the masterpiece Tam Lin.

All in all this band does a reasonable job at imitating some of the folk greats. It is in no way a folk-prog masterpiece. For one thing there is no prog to be found here (there is very little to be found in The Fairport or Steeleye Span either) and for another it is a pale imitation.

Psychedelia | 2/5 |
