4 stars Summer Prog! Canterbury folk prog at its best.

I love this album, it always put me in great mood. I feel like dancing everytime. And that doesnt happen much when I listen to music. The part that I enjoy mostly in this album is the bass. Its crazy and it just feels so alive. Its all over the place and controlled at the same time.

The lead vocal reminds me somewhat of Belle & Sebastians vocal, it got the same feel to it. Kind of lazy and extremly comfortable.

The album have some longer parts and some more pop oriented small songs, but the album flow good and you never get bored. The highlight of the album is the ending track Nine Feet Underground, a 22 min classic prog track.

Many people I have met have said that Caravan is to weak and tame and thats what was my first thought aswell. I gave it a second chance and got hooked.
