5 stars It has taken me a long time to get around to buying this one, but being shut up and having read some reviews that seemed almost to good to be true, I decided to buy. What a great set this is, by far to most satisfying strawbs record since their 70's commercial peak. So good that it would have fitted in well after Ghosts. Everything that us great about this band is here in bucket fulls. Clearly Bainbridge is a fan of the Strawbs, and it is his mellotron work that gives this release its classic feel. Classic in every sense, should this turn out to be their last then they are going out on a real high. For lovers of Dave Cousins voice and the Strawbs in general this has to be at the very least a 4.5. i am going the whole hog though and will give it 5 stars. IMHO it fulfills all the tests and is Essential, a true masterwork of progressive rock music. It you like the Strawbs this really deserves to be in your collection, my only regret is that it has taken me so long to get around to purchasing it.
