5 stars 1. If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd do It All Over You::::: This Song gives me a good feeling when ever I listen to it. Completely Canterbury Stylee; Poppy, jazzy, trippy, and great distorted organ solo by David Sinclair. Very good opener.

2. And I Wish I Were Stoned/Don't worry::::::: The first thing I notice on this song is the nice mellow bass, yet then before you know it, the trademark organ solo really inflates the intenseity of this song. Great song. Long Song. Great drums, great guitar solo also. Then: here come the warm vocals: "Don't worry about me". I like the way Don't Worry sounds, as well as the way it stars (after the climax of And I Wish I Were Stoned). Ends with a trippy drum solo.

3. As I feel I die::::::::: Real mellow, very hard to describe the feel of the song, which is a very good thing. After a while the song becomes very upbeat, pounding drumms, siren keyboards, presented in a fast way that makes me want to shout GO. Here Comes The Warm Organ; blareing, ringing, complex bass work, frantic rhythm guitar gives it a psychedelic feel, upbeat drums; all mixed together rambling, exploding. But then it ends semi instantly.

5. Hello Hello:::::::: With Sinclair on lead vocals you know you can't go wrong, especially with the first three classic Caravan Albums, and Hatfield & The Norths two albums. I actuallythink alot of this song, pretty good especially at the end when things start to go crazy.

6. Asforteri::::::: Short and sweet, great vocals from Sinclair and Hastings.

8. Limits:::::::Another short song. Reminds me of the end credits of the album, even more so after the previous track Can't Be Long Now / Françoise / For Richard / Warlock, which is by-far the best song(s) on the album. Towards the end of the song/album there is a very beautiful flute solo, which is a very good closer to a very wonderful, well produced album, and one of the Canterbury Scene's most treasured jewels.
