5 stars This is another beautifully intricate album from the canterbury school sounding very close stylistically to Hatfield and the North and National Health, the main detectable differance to me being that this compositionally is a little closer to jazz fusion and it seems Alan Gowen composes longer riffs leaning more toward bebop rather than baroque(ala Dave Stewart). The musicianship ranges from beautiful and gentle to highly evolved and dazzlingly intricate fusion with bass, drums, keys and guitar weaving through the numbers with elegant and detailed interaction; pushing each other; sometimes going just a bit outside but never far. This is musicians music with a fine sense of conterpoint and great awareness of each instruments capabilities and textures. This is an often overlooked instrumental masterpiece revealing some of the very best that the canterbury scool had to offer!
