Prog Reviewer
4 stars Another strong album from the Strawbs, showing the full range of their sound from prog workouts to folky, medieval-tinged pieces and all conceivable mixtures in between. The hit single from the album, Part of the Union, is a bit dull and monotonous, and the closing track lasts a bit too long for a gimmicky album-closer, but the rest of the material is still strong, with the Elizabethan-tinged Tears and Pavan being a particular highlight. Not a masterpiece, but still a very very good album, and more than worthy of inclusion in the classic run of Strawbs albums from From the Witchwood to Ghosts.
Warthur | 4/5 |
