5 stars I have no hesitation in awarding this 5 stars.I know a lot of people complain about 'The Battle Of Epping forest' being a bit silly with all the 'cockney speak' and strange put on accents.However this is wonderfully laconic stuff in my view.Perhaps it helps to be English to appreciate it! And that brings me to the beauty of this album -it has a theme- ENGLAND! Dear ole 'blighty' ,its essentially an ode to the (lost?) traditions and quintessential English character.If this was a beer it would be a pint of warm ale, and I make no apologies to anyone who doesn't understand this! So what of the music you ask?? Well there are classics and then there are more classics -'Dancing With The Moonlit Knight','Firth Of Fifth','The Cinema Show' -what more do you want? Ok not 'More Fool Me' I hear in unison plus that naughty boy at the back of the class shouting 'Battle Of Epping Forest'! Well use the skip facility on your CD for More Fool Me and just learn to appreciate The Battle Of Epping Forest.You will if you try!

MASTERPEICE.
