From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I like to make a pitch for albums that otherwise might go less noticed on this site when I listen to one and it strikes my fancy.

So here's my pitch for this fine piece of work by Caravan that typically does not get the attention that several of their other wonderful classic works get.

This is a good place for the common music fan with less of a progressive urge to get a handle on the group. There is nothing outstanding here, but it is a very solid piece (maybe one of the best) and a fine example of an accessible prog album that works consistently well from start to finish, has a pop/accesible flair to it, and has many nice prog musical elements dispersed throughout as well, including quirky melodies and maestro playing. The highlight/most catchy piece is without doubt Jack and Jill, a very fun and dancible piece, performed and produced impecably, and with a killer hook and groove. The rest fills in and flows around this piece very nicely. On amazon, I's give this 5 stars. Here, for the hardcore prog crowd: 4.
