3 stars I first heard this album many years ago, I was a big fan of King Crimson, so I thought I would try it out, but its more like pure Folk than Prog. Unfortunately Pete Sinfield is better at writing the words than the music, so it is alot softer & simpler than KC. I am not sure why this album rates higher than the CD release "Stillusion" which is the same except for a different order + 2 extra tracks. (I've heard the CD re-release, the 2001 version does not seem to have the EQ problems) Tracks #2 & 9 are the best on the album, more prog than the others. #2 "Under the Sky" was co-written with Ian Macdonald, former Keyboardist with King Crimson, while #9 "Night People" had Mel Collins, who played Sax in KC, co-writing. Tracks 3 & 4 are more jaunty folk numbers, with "Wholefood Boogie" sung about Pete's dietary beliefs (he's a vegetarian). The title track is good but a little unusual, with Pete reading Poetry in the beginning then Greg Lake singing Vocals at the end. Pete Sinfield got many of his old bandmates & associates to help him, with Keith Tippet playing piano or bass on some tracks & John Wetton, Boz Burell played bass on some others. On the whole not a bad album, but only for those who like more mellow folk music. If you want to read Pete's poetry check out his website songsouponsea.com
