Beautiful Scarlet
4 stars Good stuff, classic British Jazz Rock.

Concerto For Bedsprings is song where at times I find Dave Lawsons voice unpleasant but at other times find myself loving the song. I think this one is a mixed bag but it's presence ultimately enhances the album.

I Spider is a bit shorter and better. A very even excellent song, fantastic dramatic vocals.

Love You maintains the wonder of the previous track and features a really neat intro I shan't spoil.

Track four has a pompous name? it's an instrumental that goes through different areas excellently and colours the album with variety.

Always I wait is my least favourite song, bearing resemblance to track 2/3 but being of lower quality.

Overall this a superb album for me that I recommend to fans of Soft Machine or Colosseum, brought down by a spotty opener and unnecessary closer.

Beautiful Scarlet | 4/5 |
