PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I listened to this album over and over, thinking it was going to someday seduce me into believing that it was as good as it ought to be. The main problem, I think, is that the available time and budget simply wouldn't permit the performers from getting everything right. The vocals are often problematic (weak or shrill), the instrumental performances sometimes glitchy (not-so-smooth fretwork), and the arrangements are too simple (more strings, and stuff like flute or oboe would've helped). There are saving graces which make the album worth keeping, like the lovely "Alice's Song". Some of the "favorites", however, made me want to listen to the original versions.

3 stars Evergreen

Baroque & Roll is an album credited to "Acoustic Strawbs" and was released at a time when Strawbs had not released anything new for quite some years. As such it could be seen as a welcome sign of life and pointing to a brighter future. But it was probably not what long time fans of the band had been waiting for. The material here was not new, but is rather acoustic re-makes of classic Strawbs songs. Some of these re-makes are better than others and some feel rather unnecessary. However, it is overall a pleasant listen.

The core of the band here is Dave Cousins, Dave Lambert, and Brian Willoughby, but there is also a string section on song songs (and I'm sure I can hear some non-acoustic instruments). The string section makes some parts into what one might perhaps call "chamber Folk".

The most progressive pieces here include striped down renditions of Ghosts and The Riven/Down By The Sea. Evergreen is a beautiful song. Nothing here is essential or better than the originals, but it functions as a nice complement. My advice is to make sure to get the original albums from which these songs were taken before investing in Baroque & Roll. But once you've gotten that far, the present album (along with the similar Painted Sky) is a worthy addition as well.

4 stars On second thought... I, like many, was disappointed when I first heard this album. What? No new material? No bass or drums? No keyboards? This is a new recording by one of the greatest prog groups ever. Are you kidding? Well, after a few years of second listens (after hearing Painted Sky without a ... (read more)

5 stars The fans of the Strawbs, and especially the Progressive fans, would probably think that an accoustic album, containing some of the finest moments of the "Electric Strawbs", must be dull and boring. well, surprise, surprise!! this album is completely different then any of the 'Un Pluged' TV shows you ...
