4 stars The Norwegian band Needlepoint's Walking Up That Valley record is a very, very cool thing that should delight those who enjoyed the Magic Bus approach. Needlpoint does not play in Canterbury (although I find there a little Caravan / Cressida side especially in the way of singing and using semi-acoustic guitar sounds) but rather in English Psychedelic Rock from the end of the years. 60. Superb pieces, rich compositions and admirably interpreted! Special mention for drummer Olaf Olsen who knew how to breathe vital momentum throughout this record which otherwise would have risked being too soft. Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection. Truly 4.5 stars.
