4 stars It is nice to see that the ratings for this wonderful album are pushing it closer to the best rated of all Caravan albums, because it is without a doubt the best. Geoffrey Richardson was the missing link on the earlier albums and, I feel his ambitous ideas gave the band another dimension. It revolutionised the Caravan sound. The wonderful Chance Of A Lifetime has got to be one of the finest prog songs of all time. On this album of very powerful and extremely well written songs that seem to run into each other as though a continuation of the previous song but move on to the next. Caravan have always possessed that happy sound. Sort of SING ALONG WITH US ! Canterbury scene humour but more importantly Canterbury scene musicainship of the highest order. Its not for me to review every crook and cranny of this album,Id better leave that business to people that get paid for it. WE THE PEOPLE (Garland Jefferies) are the real listeners. In 1974 I was fortunate enough to see Caravan play this album live in Bristol. The supporting act on this particular evening was none less than Renaissance.
