3 stars Fuzzy Duck came to my attention almost 15 years ago when heard them on a progressive rock radio, good old times. The main points of interests were the overall sound and I absolutely loved the pulsating busy bass guitar. All instruments are powerful though, with Hammond bringing a slightly progressive/psychedelic twist, rhythm section (bass/drums) evoking different atmospheres, some old-fashioned hard-rock/rock singing and great guitar. How could such virtually unknown band create quite a mature album with balanced compositions and instrumental sections? That's because these lads had enough experience from their past acting in different bands. The first two tracks have even a small epicness in them - they have enough length for guitar/bass to stretch out. "Mrs Prouts" is my personal favourite with drumming/bass inspired by the Canterbury bands. Later tracks may be more pop-oriented or, on the other hand, have a harded edge - maybe Uriah Heep sounding - "More than I am". "In our time" is the most emotional piece with a bit of melancholy and excellent progressive hard-rock moments a la Atomic Rooster.

The album's mix and songs feel really cozy and always image early autumn with colourful leafs. The bonus tracks are non-essential but show a more operatic vocals and straightforward direction. Great for fans of the 70's progressive hard rock, less essential for pure prog-rock fans.
