Prog Reviewer
4 stars The rock elements return somewhat on this album, after receding a bit in Cruel Sister, resulting in what might be my favourite Pentangle album. Including a wonderfully gentle and moving rendition of the old country standard Will The Circle Be Unbroken does not indicate a move to country territory - in fact, it's one of several songs which take advantage of the lush, rich sound the band achieves in their first recording in a 16-track studio. It's a shame it took them this long to come to grips with the latest recording technology, because I do wonder what it would have allowed them to achieve on albums such as Basket of Light if they had access to it. Perhaps they'd have done the material on that album more justice.
