4 stars Supersister picks up the baton from their debut album on this, their second album.

I do not see many, if any difference from their debut album on To The Highest Bidder. Supersister did not take themselves too seriously. The music here proves that. It is high spirited in the Caravan, Focus and Hatfield & North vein of prog. It is very much a Canterbury Scene prog album and one of the better ones too. Frank Zappa was one of major influences, but I cannot find any of his avant-garde influences here. Lyric wise, this is Frank Zappa influenced.

The music here is both melodic and full of intricate rhythm patterns. The piano runs riot and is both driving the melodies and the rhythm patterns. The music here is excellent throughout. It is pretty easy accessible too. My only gripe is that the music is too simple and without the dept I require. But it still have depth and colors enough to keep me interested for a while. The songs are excellent with No Tree Will Grow as the best song here.

This is probably one of the most easy accessible Canterbury Scene prog albums out there and an excellent introduction to this scene.

4 stars
