Grave new world from 1972 finding Strawbs in an almost new light, musicaly speaking. Being considered as a folk rock band with progressive leanings with this album they enter in symphonic prog zone but aswell keeping the folk flavour of previous albums. Is a transitional album for them and is clear in some of the pieces presented here. Considered for many as one of the best albums they ever released, to me is only an ok one. With the exceptions of high class pieces and aswell the most progressive ones from the album The Flower And The Young Man and the excellent Tomorrow the rest of the album is pretty much ok but no groundbreaking moments, at least for me. To much acustical passages with pieces that are under 2 min. The baroque and pastoral feel of the album might be intresting in places but as I said is less enjoyble and solid then their next copuple of albums. Anyway a worthy one if you are a Strawbs fan but I don't think is quite inventive and great in terms of quality as Hero and heroine for instance.
