4 stars With their classic line-up, BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST's "Octoberon" is a classic and represents in my opinion of their greatest pieces of work. Soft and yet expressively progressive throughout, "Octoberon" will please your ears with some highly skilled song writing and strong musicianship. Octoberon is abundant in memorable songs written by Les Holroyd , John Lees and John Wolstenholme who each bring a slightly different emotion into each song. Standout track for me is "Ra" which seems to push all the right buttons, bringing forward highly progressive elements and actually carrying a slight CAMEL feel with it. Overall "Octoberon" is a great album and one which I would certainly encourage all music lovers to ask for as a Christmas stocking stuffer
