5 stars It would never occur to me to call this a 'cold' album. In spite of the intricate compositions and the virtuoso jazz-rock soloing, I feel there is a lot of warmth in OF QUEUES AND CURES, not just because there are so many delightful melodies hidden here, but also because of John Greaves' 'crooning' and the beautiful arrangements for cello, clarinet (Jimmy Hastings!) and brass. And thank goodness for that inimitable humour, so typical of the Canterbury scene!

Summing up, this is one of the greatest 'jazz-prog' albums ever produced, up there with Brand X's MOROCCAN ROLL and Bruford's ONE OF A KIND.
