5 stars This is an epic progressive album, even though less known than others at the time. It combines a structured approach with jazzy improvization and a Mony-Pythonesque humor characteristic of Canterbury style prog. The keyboards dominate and they are played in the most relaxed, yet expressive manner by David Sinclair. The flute adds a pastoral, almost classical touch in the quieter passages. The are some intense moments, but overall, the album has a flowing feel to it. The best songs are Winter Wine, an almost symphonic prog piece, and the 20+ minute epic Nine Feet Underground, featuring some great organ playing and interesting melodic ideas. Golf Girl is a quirky little progressive pop piece, but it works very well. I'd give it a 4.5 really, I don't think it is a masterpiece because of some weaker material. But a great album nevertheless, very charming in a typical English way. I couldn't recommend it higher for fans of the old school progressive rock.
