4 stars Great album from Canterbury's best known musicians. Their first album was already very good, and this is the logical conclusion when you put all those talented musicians in one recording room, and let them complement each other with their various skills and styles.

For the most part this is quiet relaxed music, with extended instrumental passages, focussing on the beauty of the songs rather than on complexity, or trying to overplay one and other. A large element of their music is jazz in nature, with the typical Canterbury melody lines and symphonic structures, lots of piano/keyboards and added flutes, with delicate drumming and really good arrangements.

Off course for Canterbury fans this is essential stuff. If you're not familiar with the Canterbury scene better to start with Soft machine or Caravan, but this comes very close to defining the Canterbury sound.
