4 stars The beautiful cover art and the library categorization under "Prog/Psychedelia" (in Helsinki Library) rose my interest towards this album. I didn't find the music very much of the either genre, but that was OK since I liked it anyway. Actually, based on (perhaps too few) listenings of this album only, I would have put him under Prog Folk here. Browne was an acoustically oriented trobadour and his music is charming, rather peaceful, dreamy and hazy, and a bit fairytale-like, and not without some darker tones too. Very well fitting to the album cover!

Some artists he could be compared to: FOREST (prog-folk band from the early 70's), INCREDIBLE STRING BAND, early AL STEWART, ROY HARPER, MAGNA CARTA, why not even Simon & Garfunkel but with more psychedelic haze and roots in British Folk. This album contains 12 tracks varying from one to 5+ minutes in length. There are some highlights but the whole album is pleasant; if I remember right there were no songs that turned me down.

[P.S. This is my 200th reviewed artist. It was aimed to be my 400th review too (just for symmetry), but I miscalculated and it's No. 401. That makes the ratio of 2 reviews/artist, but I have a lot of only-once-reviewed artists. My most reviewed artists include Vangelis, Mike Oldfield ("only" 14 each though), Peter Hammill, Steve Hackett, Moody Blues and Tangerine Dream. I've been quite reluctant to review the "big" names with hundreds of reviews here. Otherwise my reviews list would look quite different!]
