4 stars What can i say,i guess it all has been said about this beautiful piece of music,even the cover is beautiful ! What a wonderful instrument the mellotron was...or is.(There are still a lot of groups using it....long live !) But there`s not just the mellotron that makes this album great,the instruments are well played by every member in the group,but that wouldn`t be enought if the songs wasen`t any good,however...on this album they are great.Lovely songs that are in fact simple, but they are arranged in a very clever way that lifts them up to a higher level. This was a very creativ period for the group(as it was for many others)and after seeing Strawbs live in Oslo many years ago,i got the chance to talk to Dave Cousins ,and i asked him what his favorite album was,and he said Deep Cuts.That album is good but there are other that comes before that one. If there are anything negative about this album it must be the song "just love" ,it`s not as good as the rest.And last...i dont know why,but i have never liked the lyrics on "round and round"mabye it`s because i used to be a hippie. Strong,very strong 4 stars !
