3 stars In many respects this is a stronger album than his follow up album Rime of The Ancient Mariner. Stars End is made up of two self titled parts, strong orchestral pieces with long periods of random themes not always taking a necessarily likeable direction. David Bedford has always been one for unpredicatble sound however on side one in particular Mike Oldfield's contribution on guitar is a definite highlight which kind of acts like the glue putting the pieces together. Highlights of his contribution can be heard on his Boxed release. Side two is more accessible but still very much more of the same demonstrating the eccentric tendencies of David Bedford's sound. For any interested listeners I would recommend starting with the Nurses.. debut album but Star's End is still good material. Three and a half stars.
