5 stars Yet another masterpiece! An album with a slight inclination towards funky and hard-rock. It kicks off with a bewitching composition "Memory Lain, Hugh" recorded with the participation of an 8-person-section of brass instruments and concluded with a 10 minute instrumental suite "L'auberge du Sanglier/A Hunting We Shall Go/Pengola/Backwards/A Hunting We Shall Go (reprise)". This extraordinary piece is full of ingenious musical ideas. The two last parts were recorded together with the powerfully sounding symphonic orchestra; and on top of that with synthesizers, which at that time were still a novelty. And between the fascinating beginning and great ending there can be found such pieces as: "Be All Right/Chance of a Lifetime", a composition which owing to the electric viola became demonically rapacious. With such a background the solo on the guitar sounds simply wonderful! The first dynamic part gradually evolutes into crying "Chance of a Lifetime" with the aquatic guitar and solo performed on the viola.
