4 stars Sadly, this is the last true symphonic rock album of Barclay James Harvest. Because this is the last with Wooly Wolstenholme and the mellotron. The year of 1978 is not a good year for prog rock: the bands show a music more acessible (like "Tormato" or "And Then There Were Three") and this album of BJH is another example of more commercial progressive rock. If the band in the past are sometimes acessible but always good, here the group show a more commercial and weak songs: "Loving is Easy"; "Turning in Circles" and "Sip of Wine". But when the band make a good songs are very good! First of all the Wooly´s epic "In Search of England". After the Wooly's folk "Harbour" and the beautiful of "Berlin"; "The Streets of San Francisco" and "Closed Shop". This is the last flight of butterfly in world of true symphonic rock!
