Review by Sean Trane
4 stars With the previous aptly-titled Slightly Sorry, Pat Gubler makes up for it, by issuing a much better Starry Mind, even if he keeps the standard 70's folk rock group formula that was used previously. But instead of sounding straight west-coast and Fairport-like, he adds a few Pentangle or early-Strawbs. The siongs range from the 3-mins Hang Heavy until the 6-mins+ Palace and Talk Me Down.

Armed with a na´ve sunny folk artwork, Starry Mind features more or less the same double- guitar quartet, but sounds much more inspired, and a tad more British, with the odd Tull influences or even some raunchy Neil Young or Bert Jansch-y guitar parts. Once again (and sadly enough), no trace of Gubler's distinctive harp, that graced his early solo career.

Although the album's overall energy level is pretty even throughout the album, there is a slow intensity build up that culminates with the second last track. One of the attraction about SM is the thrashy guitar sounds, especially when mixed with the cool vocals, reminiscent of Jansch or Anderson, like in Letter. The album-shortest Days Hang Heavy is also the quieter, bit like an acoustic track from Aqualung.

One of the album's peaks is the awesome and energetic Talk Me Down, where both guitars unleash like if Everybody Knew This Was Nowhere. The following slow and heavy-riffy Wrong Side Of Yesterday has some flute-less Tull Benefit influences, while the later Crooked Way is climbing one more echelon up the electric ladder, only to let the closing calmer the organ- drenched (courtesy of Gubler) This Song

A much better album than the previous Slightly Sorry release (so were we, Pat), SM is still quite a stretch from his extraordinary first two albums Porch Favourites and Well Of Memory, but this quite a pleasant surprise and reversal of the downward spiral started with the weird Sherman Box.
