Prog Reviewer
4 stars Steeleye Span rebounded from their glancing collision with popularity (heralded by the All Around My Hat single and accompanying album) with this piece, which took their folk-rock blend about as hard into the rock end of things as they'd ever manage to steer it. The closing The Drunkard is a bit alienating, the messing-about involved taking a bit too long before things settle in, and there's still enough roots in traditional folk songs (and a delightful a capella Bosnian Hornpipe rendition) to keep the folk fans happy, but this is really one for those who wished that Steeleye Span and Jethro Tull would meet in the middle somewhere.
Warthur | 4/5 |
