5 stars They had the style till then face a more reformative flow at the same time as transfering the register to CBS in 1970. Show..Music..obviously..color..strong..go, this album became the second a work from CBS. The style of the tune has the flow that unites the style of Jazz further and is constructed. However, it had already been proven not to end in mere Jazz Rock by the sensibility that Softs had in the United States and Britain. The flow of the entire tune became shape to condense the composition of a further form.. tune in "Third" extremely further. However, Softs at this time will be sure to be the most important for Canterbury Scene album including "Third" and this album. Wyatt is guessed that the next plan had already arisen in his head in this album though takes an active part. However, the principal member of Softs revolutionizes in the age and the album changes the consistency of Softs little by little. It is guessed that it matches so that Wyatt may produce Solo Album in 1971 and the directionality of Softs had liquidity in it. I think that this album is indispensable if talking about mid-term Softs. And, it might be one of the masterpieces in Softs. The flow of the album lands in the suite of "Virtually" including the first "Teeth". This album with a severe flow might clarify the revolution from "Third" and the flow changed into an external limited element in "Fifth" to which possession Wyatt came off an inner element. One the top might have been received for them at this time if the history of Softs was considered.
