4 stars It's hard to find albums like this where every song seems to sound better than the previous. Between fusion and prog "Better Late" is maybe one of the most interesting albums of the late 70's, full of delicated and beautiful melodies and superb instrumental songs such as "While Chrome Yellow Shine" and "Labyrinth". Kit Watkins sounds better than ever, so as the voice of Mr. Stanley Whitaker. And on the other hand we have the amazing work of Frank Wyatt on keyboards. That fusion gives a clear result with high prog moments (solo guitar on "The Falcon, for example) and excellent instrumental fusion parts (as "Sahdow Shaping").

But I said that every song is great, really. Very harmonic, athmospheric, and emotive lyrics... Totally recommneded to any prog fan novice or or not...
