4 stars For sure, by training I am not a die hard fan of this kind of music. But ....very honest with you, I do enjoy the music this album presents. To me the composition is high calibre as it does not only contain change of styles that happen quite frequently but it has successfully blended various elements of music from psychedelic, rock as well as jazz. In fact I do enjoy how it flows from start to end as I don't feel any sense of getting bored with the music; in fact they have crafted wonderfully so that the listeners enjoy the movement from one segments to another. I am sure by design the music was not intended to be improvisational in nature - but as it moves there are some sort of jam session with stunning solo like guitar or in fact bass guitar.

I am not going to review on track by track basis as this kind of music has its own distinctive presence to be enjoyed the whole album as one piece of music so that we can get the overall picture how the music is shaped. However, there are some segments that are avant garde in nature if it is enjoyed at the segment itself it's not gonna be something interesting to note. But ...as one whole piece of music it's really a joyful experience enjoying this album - especially right now heavy rain outside as I am typing this review at my mom's home.

To conclude my overall view about this one album by Cornucopia, let me put it this way: composition-wise it's not something really melody-based or song orientated philosophy, rather it's like a concept album as you look everything in its entirety regardless how individual song is composed. While on the basis of style changes there are many happening here at this album even though it comes quite natural as consequence of whole-lot composition. There are basically some level of complexities and unusual compositions built around this album. The good news is that everything indicates one structural integrity if we look at the whole. So ....I conclude with an excellent addition to any prog music collection ...plus, I enjoy the vintage sound quality produced from this record. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
