5 stars Even the first time I listened to this I was amazed and my mind was blown. Hatfield & The North was a supergroup, formed by Sinclair(Caravan), Miller(guitars, from Matching Mole), Pyle (from Gong, drums), Stewart(Khan, keyboards). Their first album is one of the best Canterbury albums of all time. The album contains all the elements that made the Canterbury Scene so great: nice melodic and romantic moments mixed with complex arrangements in the instrumental parts. All the songs are connected to each other, so it sounds like it's formed by one long song. But, if we consider all the songs separated from each other, we have 15 marvelous pieces, where the music, similar sometimes to the soft machine's "tiny virtuousness" in the very brief songs, flows like rarely an album does. Absolutely essential, being one of the best Canterbury albums ever. Enjoy and listen carefully!!
