4 stars The man who created his myth. I feel that this fantastic album was directly influenced by the stellar 2 CD compilation album Harper released a few years back entitled Songs Of Love and Loss which featured songs picked by Roy dealing with past relationships. Most of which failed. The related songs on Man And Myth which come to mind are Time is Temporary, January Man, and The Stranger. All feel, to me, like poignent conclusions to the songs on the Love And Loss album. The beautiful folk/prog of Heaven is Hear segued into the Exile is time transporting musical bliss with a majestic almost understated Floyd like accompaniment (minus any keyboards of course) but with the signature rubbery frettless bass leads of Tony Franklin to keep the music from sounding dated. The most outstanding and overlooked feature of this album is how much Harper's voice has morphed into an instrument of it's own with perfect pitch and keys often supplying the true melody of the songs. Amazing! This album is a worthy come back but please also seek out Songs Of Love And Loss which is not even listed on this sites discorgraphy.
