5 stars This is in my opinion Peter HAMMILL's shining moment in the prog spotlight (although there have been many). With such a diverse musical history it is very hard to pick my favorite, but "Fool's Mate" has been a household fav for some time. The songs on "Fool's Mate" are very well written and performed to perfection. This is a concept like story line and seems to start and end with a hyptnotic like circular song (Imperial Zeppelin). Throughout we are treated to some incredible musicianship including the worldly guitars of a young Robert Fripp. "Fool's Mate" also covers a wide range of emotions and moods throughout. This is a slightly more relaxed recording than others from HAMMILL and it makes those dark cold winter nights fly by.
