Eclectic Prog

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I think this is much more inspired than their next two albums, my favourite tracks are Knots (the proto Bohemian Rhapsody, the quirky instrumental Boys in the Band, The River, and A Dogs Life - I love the oompa loompa (reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate factory) part in that song very unique. The rest of the tracks are quite enjoyable. This album is a little more folky and soft than their next albums nevertheless very eclectic, quirky and unique. A four star album, a worthy purchase for any serious prog collector.
