4 stars The Canterbury scene was really defined by the debut album by HATFIELD & THE NORTH which remains today a pure classic progressive rock album. What is amazing is that every musician is so strong and this album feels so cohesive and not a tone of soloist going for it. Every track is a real treat and by composition showcases the extreme talents of this band. EGG's Dave Stewart's plays some brilliant organ and keyboards here while Richard Sinclair's bass and vocal work tightly contributes. Also one must take note of Phil Miller's guitar playing and Pip Pyle's drumming which get to unfold over the album and sound in perfect fit. HATFIELD also included the vocal harmonic trio of Barbara Gaskin, Amanda Parsons and Ann Rosenthal) who were referred to as the "Northettes". In many ways this album represents Canterbury's answer to VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR mixed with GENTLE GIANT. The album is an assortment of 15 tracks all interwoven making this a concept-like piece.
