3 stars As a folk album it's perfect. Well, maybe except few songs. But I find myself quite a confused and I'm wondering how to rate album which sounds not much like prog

Songs flows slowly, I must say that I quite like folk music recently (I wonder why), but only unusual thing here is bass guitar (used for few tones) and maybe strings. Fact is that I'm not prog folk expert, nor any other genre expert, so my knowledge is not as good as it could be, so I have to use just my ears. And they're big ears (I hope it doesn't sound funny).

Songs are average by my opinion, not some of these 3.5 stars (with 3-rating), but fully deserves middle mark. I like "Switch Out the Sun" which indeed is funny one about results of excessive drinking and hangover. "Until She Needs You" part 0:39-0:44 was used in many country/folk songs. It's well known one, but fits perfectly here. "Yellow Belly" is rather strange, but listenable, instead of last song about some recipe. Maybe I didn't get it at all, but except nice Dylanisque music it's good part is just first 2/3.

Listenable, but not so prog rock. But it's prog folk, so it's not so important Still I quite like and will listen from time to time.

EDIT: And I do, I like it a lot. Funny thing is that it reminds me my first experience with alcohol (before I started to drink Pilsen beer, which relieves you from any kind of hangovers. They simply aren't here), but even funnier thing is that I like one particular second in this song. It's in interval 00:00-00:05, the first time where bass guitar player puts his finger on strings. This exact tone is unique.

3(-), wild endings, at first I hated them, then never-minded them, now I like them. Funny cycle, as a lot of things about this album.
