3 stars Better By Far is not a bad album. Maybe it's not progressive like the early albums (wich were basically more psychedelic).

This album is more a melodic pop/rock album in the category John Miles/Al Stewart. A stand-out track on this album is The Last Unicorn, wich is a great instrumental, where Geoff Richardson can show off all his abilities.

The Caravan albums between 1977-1982 are all great pop/rock albums, and should be listened to it that way. The songs are catchy, diverse and the production is great. So no loss here. Just a great pop/rock album with some disco, soul and americana-influences. Even the ballads are rather nice.

Kingsnake | 3/5 |
