4 stars I agree with the reviewer who says 'To share our love' is perhaps forgettable, and disagree with those who don't like 'Send me know wine' as being the low point. I find this latter track almost evokes a transient drunken reverie, and is a pleasant listen.

'Lovely to see you' (again my friend), I've often heard that song in my head (and felt the emotion) on seeing someone not seen for years. 'Dear Diary' is clever, humourous, and has the distinctive flute playing of Ray Thomas that embellishes the song to rival his performance on 'Timothy Leary' on 'In search of the lost chord'.

'Lazy day' sounds like it might have been written to sentimentally recall halcyon family get-togethers. 'Are you sitting comfortably' is mystical, a song that transports you gently to the time and world of Merlin.

'The voyage' sounds like it was written to accompany the lighting of a 'joint', and there's a part repeated after "now you know that you are free" which makes me think of someone inhaling/exhaling/releasing, as they go into a trance/hypnotic state.

Overall, a good album, and another very nice album cover.
