3 stars "If I Could Do It All Over Again" is a good album by Caravan with some very powerful jazz influences present throughout the general progressive poppy attitude.

I always found most of the vocals on this album to be quite annoying because of their high-pitched nasal sound. The music here is fantastic though; very progressive yet poppy British sounding music with a very heavy jazz influence that is obvious upon even the first listen, which makes this album along with Caravan's other albums an interesting listen. The biggest stand out track on this album for me would be "Can't be long now / Françoise / For Richard / Warlock" because it progresses wonderfully throughout the various parts. There is plenty of fantastic soloing, which is to be expected, but the track also is quite gloomy sounding for what I'm used to with Caravan. The whole track is very smooth in its jazziness, and any fans of jazz-rock or fusion would most likely enjoy this piece. Another stand out track would be "With an ear to the ground you can make it / Martinian / Only cox / Reprise" which roughly follows the same format, but executes it just as well, but I'm sure I only feel this way because I lean more towards the jazz-fusion fan base.

This is definitely a recommended album for fans of jazz influenced progressive rock, even though I feel like Caravan's "In The Land of Grey and Pink" is much better.
