One of the pinnacale releases from Canterbury sound pioneers Caravan. For their sophomore album Caravan took a very different approach, which they'd continue to do throughout the span of their prime. This release marks the beginning of a more progressive and ambitious sound. An important departure from the still excellent debut release.

The highlights here are pretty much all of the longer tracks, especially As I Feel I Die and Can't be long now / Françoise / For Richard / Warlock, and really any moment on the album where Dave Sinclair is soloing, as he sounds good as ever here. The legendary For Richard became one of the staple performances at live concerts, which lead to very long and interesting live versions of the song. The shorter tracks leave nothing to be desired either really, even though they're not quite as interesting to the prog fan. The short title track and Hello Hello both exhibit just as well the great keyboard playing of Dave Sinclair at his best.

I highly recommend this album to any fans of Caravan, the Canterbury sound, or anyone looking to get into the Canterbury sound. Though personally I much prefer their next release In the Land of Grey and Pink, my favorite Caravan album and a great introduction to the interesting and unique pocket of music that is Canterbury.
