4 stars From the blues revival, through psychedelia to progressive. This is the first Family's album that can be defined progressive, even if some tracks are not. The starting song, "The Weaver's Answer" has influenced lot of other artists and it's possible to find its echoes in some other groups, in particular "Banco del Mutuo soccorso", whose vocalist has the same "vibrations" of Chapman's voice. It's a mix of varoius genres, from the rock and roll of "2nd generation woman", to the arab- waltz of "Summer of 67". "Processions", "Dim" and "Hhow Hi The Li" in my opinion are the best tracks. The strength of this album is its variousness, and Chapman's voice is one of the best in the all time prog scenario. 4 stars
