3 stars Jacqui McShee has excellent voice for folk songs. Pentangle, having its roots in British folk music and early British jazzy blues, on this album play what they know best - simple, very minimalistic acoustic folk rock with jazzy arrangements.

Album's atmosphere is excellent, with dreamy Jacqui voice, acoustic music support, down tempo ballades and many tasteful instrumental excurses to jazz and blues. If you like English folk you will like this music for sure. If you're just listener searching for diversity, possibly this album is too folksy, a bit monotonic, not enough energetic, and not very progressive for sure. But even in that case you really will enjoy some beautiful folksy melodies and tasteful musicianship.

Album mostly for folk rock lovers, but pleasant listening for any fans of beautiful music as well.
