1967/ 1976
4 stars The solo debut album of Peter Hammill is a great album, not distant from Van Der Graaf Generator albums but with more poetry. In general the title of the songs reflect the music: "Happy" (for an example) is an happy song as "Solitude" is a reflective song and "The Birds" is a powerful and jazzy song. But Peter Hammill with "Fools Mate" has at the same time, made a perfect album of Prog in song format. It is clear that the vocal style of Peter, very shy and thoughtful is perfect for these songs, in general, wrote in the same style.

The production was perfect for 1971 and the presence, in certain songs of Robert Fripp is another warranty because this is still a beautiful and unsurpassed album.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
