From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars This is the debut of the guy I adore so much. The singer-songwriters are not so popular here on PA, and that's for a reason. And this album is not something you could call progressive anyway. But Roy Harper is on this site for a good reason too! His songwriting is so strong, he tries some new stuff on every album and he is known for his experimenting. Or I'm just makig that up. Welcome to the internet where anyone can say things like they are the expert!

His acoustic guitar playing is superb. He really puts his soul on the way he present his melodies and strumming and all with a great guitar technic. A truly talented man and he's crazy! So we "easily considering people" can easily consider him as a genious.

This album is full of eastern influences. His song-writing and lyrics are so powerful. You wouldn't even believe. I mean till you listen to it. Then you would become a believer and thank Mr Harper for his musicianship and poetry.

Roy Haper is truly an inspirational man. I recommend this album to any fellow who loves acoustic guitar and singer-songwriter business.
