3 stars Much better than their firstalbum and so much more accomplished songwriting.The progressive Gryphon is taking shape but the suite is over-rated in my opinion and as will be shown in the BBC sessions of the album Glastonbury Carol it was certainly better live than this relatively tepid version. This is the sort of album that needs to be discovered by the folkies to get them into prog rock simply because of the complex structures developped throughout the album. The sound of the Krummhorns is very bizarre-sounding and the over-use of it is irksome, but this is the only other flaw of the album besides the flat recording techniques.

This album can be seen as the first real classic Gryphon but certainly not their peak.
