2 stars Well, Iīve been hearing a lot of praising for this album through many, many years. When I finally got it I was quite disappointed. Clearly those guys are very good musicians, and their music is interesting. But I think I heard it all done quite better by other bands of the period (like The Pentangle). Besides, the overall feeling is of somewhat sloppiness. The arrangements sometimes sound disjoined, but what really gets me are the vocals: Wlliamson and Heron have very limited habilities In that field and sing as if they donīt care much. A pity, for there are good moments (like The Water Song) until the vocals get in the way.

My CD version has a good production for its time. the cover is also beautiful. They are good, ok, but I really prefer bands that have tighter arrangements and better vocalists. Folk acts in England and Europe always have a reputation of great singing, and this is clearly not the case. For fans of psychedelic folk only.
