4 stars This is the last good and progressive Caravan album. We still have long tracks, we have flute/violin/moog which bring good sophistication to the sound.

"Memory Lain, Hugh-Headloss" has very good instrumental section, not really in the Canterbury style but still having satisfactory moog, drums and flute playing.

"Hoedown" has an irregular rhythm and a bit country feeling, this all packed into a melodic song with 3 minutes. "Surprise surprise" is a polished pop song with good vocals but too conventional instrumentation save cello.

"L'auberge du sanglier" is a pure progressive pleasure with complex rhythm and each instrument contributing. Ranging from dynamic anxious first part transformed into the second majestic and lush part, this is a great track and one of the best by Caravan even though not close to their typical Canterbury sound.

This album deservers 3.5 stars
