3 stars This is one of the better Fairport albums. Unlike most other albums the emphasis is equally on the rock and the folk here. There are also more originals here than on the earlier albums were they mainly updated old English folk tunes.

A good thing about this album is that it sounds all British and not American like on latter albums. The country influences would later destroy albums like Nine and Rising For The Moon. But here and on the excellent follow up Babbacome Lee that had not happened yet.

I prefer Angel Delight and the even better Babbacome Lee to the earlier 60's albums as well.

I'll give this album three stars even if it is not really prog at all.
