5 stars This is really an album to my taste. This record has, diversity, good compositions, dynamics, virtuosity and funny typically british voices, although Sinclair isn't there. This album has a typically Caravan-sound, but the record seems to be a little bit less raw and a little bit more structured, than the work before. Maybe that's because there is also an orchestra on this record (which is a really good addition). This also makes the record very dynamic. I think 'L'auberge du Sanglier / A hunting we shall go / Pengola / Backwards / A hunting we shall go' is one of the best progressive orchestra rock instrumentals ever made.

The violin gives a nice folky sound at the 'song' moments. (Hoedown for example). The new bassist fits very well. The drums are great and the vocals are what you would except from Caravan. The new keyboardist can also play very well (listen to the keysolo on Memory Lain, Hugh when he plays his solo, also supported by some brass and flutes.)

Enough reasons to call this a masterpiece.

Foolsdrummer | 5/5 |
