4 stars Caravan made an artistic and sophisticate move with their sophomore effort as some songs got longer, complex and feature instrumental moments.

The short melodic tracks no longer have the essential value as on the first album because the longer tracks overshadow them. Honestly, I haven't been a big friend of radio-friendly Caravan tracks.

"I wish I were stoned, don't worry" has a better music than its title with the typical organ soloing and balance of sung vs instrumenta passages.

"As I feel I die" has a jazzy trademark Canterbury drums/bass/guitar wandering motive, very pleasant and also intensive. "With an ear to the ground" is another highlight with a more accessible instrumental offering including piano and flute.

"Hello hello" is notable for its irregular rhythm and "drops" of organ.

"Can't be long now, Francoise" is a great and complex mainly instrumental piece, thanks to saxophone also closer to jazz than usual.
