5 stars For me XII represents the highest point for Barclay James Harvest. The space butterfly introduces the listener to a space/folk/simpho/prog that is unique! Woltenholme's contributions now are two: In Search Of England describes the contrast between youth and experience, a sort of father and son thing. Harbour is an interestin piece in some intelligent acoustic guitars. Holroyd's songs are beautiful: I'm thinking about Berlin, a live classic with an excellent and tormenting piano. It's about the division between the democratic and communist halfs of that city. Turning In Circle and Sip Of Wine have good electric guitar riffs and catchy melodies. Lees' compositions are of a supreme beauty: Nova Lepidoptera (space rock), Loving Is Easy and The Streets Of San Francisco are in a highest standard of quality.

Barclay James Harvest XII: one of England's best kept secret!!!!!!!!

Highly recommended!!!
