5 stars In the land of grey and pink I would love to drink a glass of winter wine with a golf girl and then three cups of tea (and the pigs may fly). Then you could bury me nine feet underground.

Seriously, it is IMHO the greatest achievement of Caravan. because of the presence of Richard Sinclair with his clear voice. This is a perfect mixture of jazz, folk, pop and symphonic sounds (especially final track). The absence of synthesisers does not make it sound old fashioned, since the tunes are great and it is perfectly composed and arranged (especially subtle flute parts and backing vocals in the background). This album sound is mostly acoustic, without brutal guitar parts, and Hammond and electric piano are just melodic instruments, not the base for massive sound of ELP.

Brilliant album, needless to say more.
