Review by GruvanDahlman
4 stars Whilst this album does not reach the heights of the magnificent "Ship to shore, it still has plenty to offer. I suppose it must be hard to equal something so utterly brilliant. Still, I do feel that this album could not have been any better, considering. As with the predecessor the album is a mix of high-spirited tunes as well as deeply serene, magical landscapes of sounds, few have been able to produce. His effect-laden guitar is still at the helm and produces sounds of surreal character.

The opener, "All in the name of love", is a very melodic piece quite typical, in many ways, to the sound of the late 70's and this genre. I like it alot and makes me smile everytime i hear it. The next track is my favorite on the album. "Sentinel" is a quite dark, mezmerising and evocative track, slowly flowing past. It is great and I love it. That track matches nearly anything on his flawless debut. I will not further elaborate on the remaining tracks, simply state that it is a lovely bunch of songs.

The strenghts of Mazlyn Jones is his unique ability to craft music within the genre. Taking bits and pieces of prog, folk and pop he creates something that needs, craves and must be heard. If you at all are interested in one of the true geniuses of british folk, look no further. It is way up there with any of the greats. Top notch stuff and a worthy inclusion into any collection.
