3 stars The Road to Ruin was the second and last album released by husband and wife John and Beverley Martyn. It's a very interesting contrast to "Stormbringer" and a worthy companion. The first half of the album is especially strong, kicking off with "Primrose Hill", where its saxophone brings in a light jazz blend. Next up is John's "Parcels" which is a very warm, peaceful song. "Auntie Aviator" is also great with the mixture of Bev's beautifully succulent vocal work, Harris's piano and John's haunting electric guitar. Another favourite "New Day" nicely follows with some fine flute work. On the second half "Tree Green" and the title track are also very good. With the above mentioned standout tracks, this is a really decent album and an intriguing part of the John Martyn collection. 3 stars.
