4 stars 4.2/5.0

At first I was a bit like Bob McBeath when listening to this album: " So what's all the fuss about then?" I read so much great things about this band and in particular this album yet I was disappointed and it seemed to me there was not much rythm and that the songs were boring. It took two months before I decided to listen to this band again.

Then, later, after discovering other Canterbury's groups, I decided to give it a try again and was amazed how subtle and intelligent this music is. It clearly is soft music as the nsameo f the band is, but the rythm is hypnotic and the jazz parts in "Slightly all the time", in particular, are amazing. "Moon in June" has great keyboards at some point, but there could have been more Canterbury keyboards in this song (and the other song).

This is a great addition to any progressive music collecting, particularly if you like Camel, Caravan, Gong and jazz music.
