From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Significant group of the Canterbury sound that, from natural aposentos, combined elements jazz, pop, British rock, folk and psicodelia in pieces of progressive, regusto sarcastic and rich power imaginería. It is a disc without waste that intermingles the instrumental wisdom of the Keyboard player Dave Sinclair, the guitars of Richard Sinclair (also bearish) and Pye Hastings, the rythmical ability of the battery Richard Coughlan and the wind sparkles of Jimmy Hastings. The calm vocalidad of Richard Sinclair helps much to obtain that etérea, calm, magical and primaveral tonality. The songs, in spite of their progressive anchorage, must to much to the past of their components (members of the group beat The Wilde Flowers) and their search of suitable melodía pop, appreciated in wonderful subjects like "Golf Girl", "Winter glorious Wine" or "the Love I love you (and tonight pigs will fly)" (the popera song sung by the sweet voice of Pye Hastings) and "In the land of congregation and pink". The expensive b of the original Lp basically included one long and exceptional suite of eclectic rates compound by the teclista David Sinclair (their sounds to the keyboards were fundamental part of the music of the group). His varied sonic passages they exemplify the talent of this excellent British formation well.
