2 stars I had high hopes for this one, which it didn't quite live up to. It's an album of muddy-sounding (meaning poorly recorded) psych folk mixed with West Coast style psychedelia. There are some very nice atmospheric bits and the rather nondescript vocals have a relaxed, trippy feel (think Roger Waters on "Grantchester Meadows")- in fact, this record reminds me of a lot of the b-side stuff on Floyd's "Relics" album, so if you really dig that, you might want to seek this out. Instrumentally, it's nothing to write home about, a bit generic for psych of the era. Some tunes are marred by a kind of Carnaby-street jauntiness that I could do without, but overall this is much better than the Agincourt album by the same people. If you are an acid folk or folk rock completist, then you'll want to track it down, otherwise "A Game for All Who Know" is a fairly inconsequential release.
