Prog Reviewer
4 stars Greenslade kept their early sound going on Spyless Guest, perhaps upping the Genesis influence up a tad but otherwise more or less remaining true to the approach of their first two albums. The end result is charming enough if you're fond of this flavour of prog - as I am - but at the same time it's not the sort of thing which will astonish or astound seasoned prog listeners who've already heard a lot of this sort of thing.

Their next release, Time and Tide, would show a mild stylistic shift, and whilst that had a bit of a mixed reception, on balance that was probably a sound move, because four albums in this approach would be stretching it - and for some listeners, three may already be pushing it a bit.

Warthur | 4/5 |
