5 stars Golf girl tells the story of a man who met his future wife on a golf course,the latter selling tea,all this with a very humorous song british.The song begins with an intro to richard keyboard,giving way to singing for a while,and then follows the instrumental part consists of a flute who flies off and leaves in a bit all senses with very psychedelic influences.

Winter wine begins on a pretty quiet progressively to go up in a well brought up rhytme.It's a tasty mixture of pop, classical and progressive giving a piece very slight,very rythmmic.Richard sinclair's voice is very soft,fits perfectly with the song and seems to drag on this music.This solo organ towards the middle of pure happiness,guitar and organ merge to do more than one.The song ends soberly,as it began as a masterpiece ending.

Love to love you is the most pop song on the album,consisting mainly of singing quite happy Pye,who can seem very basic at the first listening,ending with the flute,a melody always also playful.

in the land of grey and pink,where we can once again appreciate the talent of david with this keyboard solo that leaves dreamer and makes dreaming.Then went with the guitar pye out of nowhere and this melody spellbinding as in winter wine that takes you into an imaginary world coloured grey and pink ;-).

nine feet underground is the most progressive song of the album,consisting of several pieces.Il is a tasty mixture of instrumental parts very developed consist of an alternation of keyboard and guitar accompanied by a drummer who knows very present in this piece and when his shots or chopsticks should be and when it will hear faut.On hardly any song that is there just to the junction between two pièces.The song begins with a pretty jazzy classic to continue on a long solo guitar distortion, which begins around the'3, which is simply of a unconvincing beauty.The harmonics you cut Blast and send you in 7th Heaven,which add a touch of insanity in sing.All around'10 .30, the pace becomes more cumbersome,as if time stopped a few moments. Very shortly I can assure you as the rebound is not expected,a few seconds later,the song rises again to dizzying heights, and this is again the keyboard that takes up the torchlight while two brothers are so by osmosis that has trouble differentiating between a keyboard guitar throughout the piece!The song ends with the melancholic and very british voice Richard's.

In conclusion, this album is for me the best album progressive of all time,very melodic,very rythmic everything seems to calculate the millimeter meadows,the instruments seem gather them to form one and all that crowned a voice that sounds very British and a purity incredible.For that ask to furthermore?
