4 stars If Gilgamesh fixes the position in Canterbury Scene, the flow might be very located closely to Hatfields. And, the existence of Alan Gowen is needed at the same time if talking about the music character of this band of course. Time when they had been formed was 1972. The history in the music of Gowen starts from the item of Jazz. And, Gowen participated in Sunship with Jamie Muir that belonged to Assagai. The flow develops into this Gilgamesh after passing twist and turn.

Gowen has received the audition of Hatfields at this time. To our regret, Gowen receives the sentence of failing in the audition. And, Dave Stewart passed the keyboard player of Hatfields. However, Stewart that joins the band evaluates the talent of Gowen high. Stewart might have been influenced from the ability in the composition of Gowen, too. Hatfields and Gilgamesh might have mutually had consideration. And, each other gave the listener the impression like the brother for the counterplan at that time.

The impression of the entire tune might be indeed light and be near the flow of Hatfields and National Health. The element of the suite like "We Are All~" receives the impression that Stewart took to Hatfields oppositely. The usage etc. of the chorus of Amanda Persons are indeed common to both. I think how for the fact that Stewart is related to the production of the album to have enhanced Canterbury Scene of this time. Gilgamesh is guessed that Canterbury Scene doesn't increase the thickness if this band doesn't exist naturally with fact Hatfields though integrates and flows to National Health.
