4 stars This is the most underrated of all the excellent albums NT made in their glorious progressive era. It is not difficult to undrstand why. The album was a double vinyl set, very ambitious but also disjointed here and there. Had it been released as a single, with less lenghty tracks and a without a pair of songs that seem to be not so essential, maybe it would have been much better. Anyway I still regard it as a strong album in wich NT tried to include in their way of composing the best of what was coming out of England, showing they could easily reach those standards in their best moments. The first part is mainly acoustic, filled with dark atmospheres. The second is captured live, and it's in a more hard rock vein, with good hendrixian-esque guitar solos, but often in the same dark, fascinating mood. Anyone who doesn't put prog at the top of his musical preferences will probably hate this one, but for us progster, grown accostumed to "Works", "Tales from topographic Oceans" and stuff like this, SFAL, even if it's not a masterpiece, will be a winner.
