Beautiful Scarlet
4 stars Fantastic album, 4.5/5. I only small issues with this album. These are 1, the lyrics suck. 2, Share It. Other then these 5/5.

The lyrics are cryptic and armed with innuendo which I wish was replaced by lyrics as good as those featured on the works of bands like Egg. I still like the songs but the lyrics hurt. Thus I simply can't give 5/5. Furthermore the opening song Share It has this Moog solo that just comes out of nowhere and is unbelievably cheesy.

Canterbury Sound Score 5/5, duh.

Overall this album is fantastic a clear improvement over the debut, tracks like Mumps are at the pinnacle of beauty.
