3 stars Caravan's "All Over You...Too" is the second reunited return to their beloved songs from the early 70s. The guitar work is heavier and more up to date but the same Caravan spirit is here in all the tracks, I adore this version of 'Cthlu Thlu' which is much darker than the original and has an incredible time sig change and killer riff. The nasty laugh at the end augments the portentous impending doomy atmosphere.

There are some incredible moments on this album. Hoedown and Very smelly grubby little oik sound terrific with the heavier guitars, Hastings vocals are fabulous. The dog the dog he's at it again is an excellent version of the classic. Stuck in a hole has a great lead break and very powerful guitar work. Doug Boyle is a key factor to the heavier sound and it is a welcome change darkening the music that is usually lighter and giving it a razor's edge to make these versions some of the best the band have played, 'Cthlu Thlu' is masterful and one of the best Caravan songs.

Nightmare is a well executed throwback to the classic version and it ends with a reprise of Bobbing wide (Reprise). I was surprised and delighted at the dynamic enthusiasm and vibrant energy of the band even in their twilight years. They still inject humour and potent instrumental breaks in the songs making them one of the genuine survivors of the 70s Canterbury prog movement.
