4 stars Another string Strawbs album with some absolutely groundbreaking tracks from the band, including the haunting title epic which sees some of the most frightening and dark musical output the band would ever produce, with Dave Cousins' vocal performance being one of the most evocative of his career. Lemon Pie, which follows it up, rather wrecks the momentum it establishes and seems a bit overlong to me, so I can't give this one a perfect score, but the rest of the album meets the high standards of Hero and Heroine or Grave New World. And even Lemon Pie isn't quite as irritating as Part of the Union from Bursting At the Seams, so I'd say that this album should be amongst the first Strawbs releases you sample.
Warthur | 4/5 |
