4 stars A great fun sort of album, quite laid-back, with funny lyrics. Nice simple to digest accoustic music, with accoustic guitars, piano, flute and soft delicate trembling bass and drums. The vocals are sometimes a bit comparable to the Moodie Blues, and Camel (Sinclair also played in Camel for a while).

The first part of the album consist of 4 songs, all very rhytmic and fast, and great fun to listen to. Winter Wine is probably the best song on the first side, with a Camelesque instrumental section, very sweet. Side two is a number of 8 short songs molded into one, great mostly instrumental experience. A very sweet song, with some good guitar solo's, and again a very Camel-like sound.

This album defines the slow fun melodic side of Canterbury music, and is for me a Hallmark album of the genre, hence the four stars, maybe not a masterpiece of progressive rock, but it clearly is a masterpiece of Canterbury music.

DeathRow | 4/5 |
