4 stars A good early prog album, the best by Caravan. People often call this album a masterpiece of progressive music. However, it's not really all that progressive, but it is still amazing. the drum beats and bass lines are fairly simplistic while the guitar and keyboard solos are wild, dexterous, and thoroughly enjoyable. The lyrics are incredibly british sounding sometimes like he was trying a parody. But theres nothing to really get upset about here. Winter wine and in the land of... are the best on the first side. The epic and incredible track "Nine feet underground" takes up the whole second side of the lp and is totally worth it. I even played that tune for my friends (who hate prog, unless they dont know they are listening to it) without telling them what it was and they all got into it after a few minutes. Great solo work by both sinclair and hastings, coughlans drumming is persistent and his drum fills are rampant, quick, and intelligent.
