5 stars From the mysterious RA, to the dark and moody Mayday the Barclays touched their progressive peak with Octoberon. A seriously good album, flowing symphonic lines, spellbinding moods and more. The track Suicide? is, what its called, a record of someone falling from a high building but with an enigma, did he jump or was he pushed..hence the question mark after the title. BJH found their feet with this mature and complete album. My favourite track, The World Goes On, is truly wonderful in a very beautiful way, and leaves you wanting more, instrumentation and arrangement is superb.. beautifully pastoral yet with dark mystery, I rate Octoberon with any of the best of prog. You must hear this record.
