4 stars This is a very fine album overall, but less consistent than its predecessor, Hero and Heroine. There are some excellent tracks (the epic Ghosts, Starshine/Angel Wine, and the first 4 tracks on side 2) but Grace Darling and Lemon Pie are just OK and Where Do You Go etc is an appalling piece of pop which was an attempt to get a hit single. This album didn't really get much exposure in the UK as Strawbs were off to crack the US, with some success; they are far better known over the pond. It deserved much better. It's not a masterpiece but well worth buying. And I will make sure I never visit Southall. To find out why, listen to track 5!
