4 stars A great soft delicate experience, on the soft side of Canterbury music, but with roots in Caravan , Gong and Egg, so some up tempo moments can be expected. A wonderfull album with soft colourfull landscapes, with soft jazzy ramblings augmented with soft piano, flutes and saxophone, with a very slow building of atmosphere.

When they increase tempo you hear the Gong and Egg reminiscence, and the slower parts are really awsome aswell. Very dynamic interplay of the different instruments, leaving room for each other to experiment and contribute. The vocals are great, mostly back ground chanting of the backing vocalists, hardly any texts, but rhythmic lalala's. The music is very intrinsic, and needs time to sink in, but when it does, it rocks.

If you like canterbury music, or if you like soft delicate jazz on an accoustic foundation, with soft, not overly complex piano melodie's I highly recommend this album to you, if you don't like these things, try anyway.

PEACE OUT
