4 stars Without a doubt this is progressive! Take "A Sailor's Life" for example, a long epic that gives a nice mix of folk and progressive rock. It starts really soft and rises to a climax with astonishing "jamming" violin and guitar, before slowing down again for the ending. The electric and acoustic instruments blend together in a perfect way in early FC. Tracks like "Autopsy" and "Genesis Hall" are among my all time favourites with this band and within folk prog in general! Sandy Denny's classic "Who Knows where the time goes" is also on the album, giving it another real highlight. The tracks "Cajun Woman" and "Million Dollar Bash" however, I see as a bit trivial compared to the ones previously mentioned.
