3 stars Barclay James Harvest in the Eighties. The years of symphonic rock has gone. Now are the days of acoustic/melodic songs and sometimes pop music. Here in 1983, the bands was broken in two parts: first when John Lees write our songs and second when Les Holroyd write our songs. Because of this, this album is very different than "Turn of The Tide". The John Lees's songs are in acoustic format: "Paraíso dos Cavalos" is very beautiful and talk about Algarve (in south of my country, Portugal) and singing a part in portuguese! Another highlight is "Just a Day Away" with a mexican-folk taste. The orchestra arragments is a revival of symphonic (in "Paraiso" and "Fifties Child"). The Les Holroyd's songs are in more commercial vein. The best is "Waiting for The Right Time" with good vocals arragments. "High Wire" and "Looking" are more weak. This album is a good album in a vein of melodic rock in eighteen years. Four stars for John Lees's songs but three stars for entirely album.
