4 stars This is one of the most underrated albums by Strawbs. Its a little bit uneven, thats for sure, but it contains some of the strongest tunes Dave Cousins ever written; "Golden Salamander", So shall our love die" and of course "Hanging in the gallery". And a very rare blues direction is heard on the lovely "Absent Friend".

On the other hand I think that the opener "To be free" has a strange and hard arrangement and the Lambert contribution "Little Sleepy" is a straight rocker with little to offer. The few other tunes not mentioned is OK but not great. This means that the album is a mixed bag, but still worth 4 stars!

Dr Pripp | 4/5 |
