4 stars A big step down from his masterpice debute and one of the best debute albums not only in prog but in music in general this one see Mike doing the same thing again but yust much lamer and softer and les variation theres alot of nice sweet melody on this one but its yust not as ground breaking and intresting or good or memorable, on tubular i culd remeber most of the melodys and when they where coming and still can on this one i can hardly remeber anything. The album is as other have described it pastoral sounding it gives me the feeling im in a old landscape with hills and forests and stuff but not like its a sunshine day more like a rainy and grey day. Its a good album if you like his other albums you will no doubt like this. Good, but non-essential.
