5 stars I hadn't listened to this cd for a couple of years, but went back to it recently and realised again how good it is. The highlight for me is The Canterbury Sequence, with its references to 'Caravan and the Hatfields', and its brilliant use of part of a Hatfield and the North track. The whole piece to me breathes the spirit of 70's Canterbury prog and is a wonderful nostalgic exercise. The Music Tha Died Alone is also nostalgic in tone and has a superb chorus. The four pieces are all characterised by excellent instrumental sections. Roine Stolt's guitar work is as good as anything he has done, and David Jackson's sax and especially flute add atmospheric quality. But above all that, Andy Tillison's keyboard playing beautifully captures the Canterbury spirit of bands like Egg and the Hatfields.
