4 stars It is a magnificant album. I stil can't believe that all promises stated in this record have never been fulfilled. All the songs are very strong though some have this end of 60s - beginning of 70s flavour (You're Not Smiling and Indian Summer). But Jackdaw, I Had a Dream and especially The House on the Hill are superb tracks, complex and truely progressive. Audience even managed to turn such "hit for all seasons" as I Put a Spell on You into a pure prog composition. Raviole is a nice showcase for Howard Werth's classical guitar skills. Reminds me some romantic music of 19th century. Nancy is the only song I personally dislike. But it is a matter of opinion. The song itself is not bad.

The title track is a brilliant piece of prog. The change of tempo in the middle is great making this song one of the gems of early prog rock. The Wreth's vocal is so innovative and Keith Gemmell's work is great. Overall, it one of the best progrock albums of early 70s and highly recommended for ant progrock connoisseur.
