5 stars I admit there are lots of album covers out there that got me hypnotized from the very first time i saw them. In The Land Of Grey And Pink is an example of that. Its pale, rose and grey colours give a glimpse of the melancholic, warm climax hidden in the musical landscapes of one of the best works from Caravan.

In five songs Pye Hastings and the Sinclair brothers mark the rules to write happy, cheerful and touching music without being fussy. Golf Girl, Love To Love You, Winter Wine and the title track are precious examples of this kind of sound build over a soft guitar and a very dynamic and tight rhythm section where the highlights are the keyboards passages and the lyrics. Furthermore, the second side of the album is filled by Nine Feet Underground, my favourite track from the band along with For Richard from the previous album. Here there is a time for every instrumental psychedelic passage they could build. Very solid jams were the keyboards are simply great, make this song a wonderful underground experience.
