3 stars Burning for me

To my ears, Burning For You is the best Strawbs album from the weak second half of the 70's period (Nomadness to Deadlines). The opening track Burning For Me is indeed one of my all time favourite Strawbs songs and one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I have ever heard! Overall, this is a rather mellow album with a couple of harder rocking songs thrown in for good measure. This is, of course, by no means ground-breaking music, and it is certainly not as exceptionally good as Hero And Heroine or Ghosts. But this is very well made music and even if there are a couple of throwaways in there, this runs like a good album.

Dave Cousins is one fantastic song writer, and if you listen closely you will find quality compositions! Not very progressive this time around and neither are they particularly folky, but still good music.
