Prog Reviewer
4 stars Just as Full House saw Fairport Convention adjusting to the departure of Sandy Denny, so too did Angel Delight see them adjusting to the departure of Richard Thompson - though he does get writing credits on The Journeyman's Grace and the lively album closer, Sickness & Diseases.

To a certain extent, this is Full House Part 2, with the male vocalists continuing to work on stepping into the gap left by Sandy Denny, and their increased confidence in this realm helps compensate for a comparative lack of musical development over that album. If you enjoyed Full House and fancy more with a similar sound, this won't disappoint - but if you're disinterested in Fairport without Sandy Denny, then this is unlikely to win you over.

Warthur | 4/5 |
