4 stars "Octoberon" is IMO the most sophisticated album of BJH. It is among their best ones too. Very rock and folk, it is also slightly progressive. The keyboards can be symphonic and floating. The lead vocals are mellow, reminding a bit David Gilmour's voice on the smooth FLOYD songs.

Some parts are mellow, folk and sad ("Ra", "Suicide", "The World Goes On"), while others are more rock and rythmic ("Polk Street Rag", "Rock'n Roll Star"). "Suicide" is particularly good, very floating and rythmic too: what do you thing happens at the end of the song?
