Prog Reviewer
3 stars Anyone familiar with the drawn-out prog folk epics on Jan Dukes de Grey's famed Mice and Rats In the Loft need only glance at the track list of this one to see that the group has a very different emphasis this time around: wheeling out no less than 18 songs, the album captures the group before their progressive side really developed, instead offering a psychedelic folk blend which focuses mainly on the folk side of the equation. Overall, it's a pleasant enough album, but there was hardly a shortage of hippy folk back in the late 1960s and far better examples are available. Newcomers to Jan Dukes de Grey would be well advised to start off with the followup instead of this one, because on the basis of this they don't seem very special, and it was only with Mice and Rats that they were able to bring something really interesting to the table.
