4 stars The nation's favourite Krumhorn Kings return with the resplendent Midnight Mushrumps

"and you, whose pastime is to make midnight-Mushrumps, that rejoice To hear the solemn curfew"

Side One The curtain rises with a gentle mood setter, then a subtle krumhorn and guitar riff backed with excellent percussion. The piece fows through different moods, reaching a Tempestuous crescendo before the gentle and peaceful finale.

Side Two Plough Boys Dream returns to the more familiar ground of humorous medieval ditty with a modern touches. The modernity is more pronounced than in Gryphon. Guitar, piano and bass guitar are more prominent. Vocal harmonies are strong and striking. The last few tracks are instrumentals. Interesting as the blend of modern and medieval matures and develops. These short offerrings show maore cohesion and are more pointed than the title track.
