4 stars Spirogyra is the definition of Prog Folk and they prove it with this album, "Bells, Boots, and Shambles". Who came up with the idea of blending instruments like the cello, keyboards, and trumpet together, along with many others. Spirogyra almost perfectly blends the instruments together without having one overpower another. My favorite track on the album is "Furthest Point" which has sort of a sad, gloomy feeling to it. But the whole song flows unusually perfect. There are many other great tracks on the album like "Parallel Lines Never Separate" and "In the Western World". But other tend to bore me like "Spiggly" and "Old Boot Wine". Over all it is a great album and I completely recommend it! 4 1/2 stars! Oh and remember that you probably will not enjoy this album through your first listen. It took me about 3 listens to fully understand the album.
