2 stars Not an Enid album, but it does make sense to place it here, seeing as it's where Robert John Godfrey first tried out a number of musical ideas which would eventually become cornerstones of the Enid's sound. To be honest, I'm not a fan; whilst the Enid/Godfrey can make quite powerful music, they also seem to gravitate to some of the more saccharine and cloying elements of classical music (of the sort plastered all over Hollywood scores of old), and this album is no exception. An interesting ride for keyboard fans, but the compositions don't add up to anything compelling. Still, probably worth tracking down if you are a major Enid fan who wants to track down Godfrey's musical roots.
