4 stars From the beginning: -The cover art is simply great and in a relaxing colour; - John Lees' songs are all very good, expecially In My Life and One Night. Titles is a good tune, tribute to the Beatles. Words are real titles of their songs... - Les Holroyd's pieces are at the same level. my favourite is Sweet Jesus, with a strong Christian influence, and its sparse arrangments is the secret of its beauty. Jonathan is a live classic, inspired by the novel Jonathan Livingstone Seagull by Richard Bach. The final coda reminds me of some Pink Floyd movement. Song For You and Moongirl are good example of the talent of this Man! - Wooly Wolstenholme's unique composition is in a orchestral conception, with a strong theme: death will not end our mortal lives, we will survive Beyond The Grave!!!

In conclusion: A very good album, that defects only in the fact it is too quieter than the previous one. Anyway, there are moments with some mordant in the first and final part of In My Life and in the first half of Song For You. Finally I suggest it to all who love mellotron in particular and good songs in general!!
