5 stars Oh, where do you start? Lots of good criticism here on this strand, but I'd use one word; autumnal. I first heard this in the autumn, and Steve's odd use of chords (mostly 7ths, but I am not sure), the juxtaposition of mellotron, guitar and flute evoke a feeling of passing, sadness and loss, the recurrent nostalgic theme from the final section of AoW, the use of woodwind (a favourite English romantic-pastoral device). Woodsmoke, sunsets, mist and mellow fruitfulness (sorry, JK). Great, great album. Tower Struck Down works better live, but what the hell.
