5 stars I consider "Bursting at Seams" from STRAWBS just like ""Grave New World" & "Hero and Heroine"a realy pearl of the seventies FOLK-PROG style and I think sincerrelly which this albun is underrated and deserves the rate of 5 stars !!! The music is very touching and the vocals of "minstrel" from Dave Cousins with his melancholic timbre ( in sometimes almost " tearful"), are very capivating. In order to illustrate that I'm speaking I can cite the track 7 "Tears and Pavan" where in certain moments the use of harpiscord and the melodie of a duel of guitar and mandolin or banjo (i'm not sure !!!), remenber to me GRYPHON . I like to emphasize the great work from Blue Weaver on the keyboards mixing mellotrons, organ, harpiscord and piano ( in my vision with more self-confidence that in "Grave New World" your debut in the band) giving a special touch from the music., and the perfect instrumental dialogue between Dave Cousins in the acoustic guitar and Dave Lambert on eltric guitar !!! For this reasons my rate, as already said is 5 stars !!!
