4 stars Jonesy second album showed some changes when compared to their debut album. Not only did the have a complete new rhythm section, but the biggest change would be the addition of trumpet and flugelhorn player Alan Bown. With him a more jazzy sound was introduced to the band. This can be heard for instance on Preview, which is trumpet and keyboards only. Or the second part of Questions and Answer, which is a sort of a jazzy jamsession. But the best example is the free-jazz of Critique (with exceptions). This sounds very much like the electric period of Miles Davis (Bitches Brew for instance). But there are also songs which a more in the "old" style, such as the brilliant Masquerade. Or the beautiful ballad Sunset and Evening Star, with a very tasty mellotron. The album closer, Children, brings both worlds together. This is full blown progressive rock. So Jonesy really progressed on this album, bringing new elements to their music.
