5 stars While The Smell Of Incense gained some attention with their two first albums ("All Mimsy Were the Borrogows" from -94 and "Through the Gates of Deeper Slumber" from -97), the third album "Of Ullages and Dottles" was largely ignored when it came in 2007. That's a pity, because this album contains some of the finest songs they've ever made! The bands style is often refered to as a kind of psychedelic folk-prog, but in fact they have developed their own quite unique style with a lot of obvious influences, but always with the distinct Smell Of Incense-sound. The melodies on "Of Ullages.." are particulary good! Sometimes conventional, but always strong. Listen to "Laughing Song" by Lumpy Davy or "The Golden Knot" by Han Solo and you'll hear songwriting of highest standard. I think this album is a sadly overlooked masterpiece! .
