5 stars Canterbury, for a lot of peolpe, it's only the avant garde jazz of soft machine and the british pop of caravan, but you've to never forget the fantastic national health. hatfield is also a very interesting band but N.H is, in my opinion, the most impressive. my favorite hatfield track was always the long epic "mumps" by dave stewart and national health following this side of hatfield's music.less jazz and more progressive music with a lot of organ.Dave stewart is a genius on this 1st N.H, all the themes are excellent and his keys parts are magic, helped by a another great keyboardist on minimoog Alan Gowen 5Gilgamesh).tenemos roads is a good example of a complex music without obscure avant garde thing, really great with nice female vocals. Brujo is a perfect progressive compostions for every body with wonderful keys duets.the rest is also great with nice playing by phil millerand pyp pyle. IMO, of queues and cures is less interesting because Stewart lose his leadership and Gowen is not here. olpa
