4 stars A really nice and at times stunning compilation of tracks from the long career of this US band.

Sophisticated, dreamy compositions is the name of the game for this ensemble seemingly, with drawn out psychedelic tinged guitar licks and soloing as something of a key feature alongside the dual male/female lead vocals.

Rhythms are either subdued and meditative like the rest of the compositions or more energetic, the latter often with world music touches, and symphonic backdrops are used to good effect on select occasions.

While the musical canvas the band explores is a somewhat limited one, at least on this compilation, there's a high degree of sophistication to their dreamy excursions, and on tracks like opener Cornerman and the following Elephant Song the end result are stunning creations, managing to utilize subtle sophisticated features to perfection to create intriguing songs as well as interesting moods and strong atmospheres.

Those who enjoy the dreamier parts of the back catalogues of acts such as Hawkwind and Pink Floyd should investigate this outfit, if they haven't already.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
