4 stars Judy Dyble sung for Fairport Convention, so that the album here sounds a bit like Fairport Convention, except that it is rather folk than blues or hard rock; she is seconded by male singer Jackie McAuley. The overall music is not extremely progressive, although it is enough to classify it as prog folk. There are some good mini-symphonic string arrangements. The drums and the bass are very timid, often being completely absent. The style is very acoustic & folkier. There are some percussions of the xylophone family, mostly in the beginning of the album. The keyboards remain rare and discreet: the piano seems the most played one, and a short passage seems to act as a repetitive interlude. The album is neither really psychedelic nor spacy. Some tracks are sad and melancholic, but the album is not globally depressing. There are a couples of more catchy tracks. There are no fillers in my opinion.
