4 stars This feels like two separate albums. The first seven tracks are studio recordings. These all have a light, jazzy vibe (in a Canterbury way, of course). The last five tracks are live, and are much more energetic.

The studio tracks are not bad, but all are much too pastoral to have any lasting impression on me. Despite that, I do enjoy Sinclair's fretless bass work on these songs. And to me, they provide a nice soundtrack to hot summer nights on the front porch.

The live tracks are where the action is. Felafel Shuffle opens the set. It's a nice, uptempo blues-based instrumental, with some cool fusion breaks. After that, the last four songs are strung together, with the beginning and ends being the Hatfield & The North songs Halfway Between Heaven & Earth and It Didn't Matter Anyway. It's a very nice medley, that really makes the album worthwhile.

3.5 stars, rounded up.

Evolver | 4/5 |
