3 stars Barclay James Harvest was one of the bands that colored my childhood together with bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and the like. Unfortunately the band had never been caught into my attention as the music was, to me, very mellow and I had no patient at all to wait the music playing from my cassette player. That's wahy I rarely had the CD collection of any BJH albums, only some of them. From the CDs that I have, there is no single album that really sand out from my personal taste.That's why I rarely wrote my review about the band. I knew the band for the first time from a favorite song called 'Poorman's Moody Blues' that really made me pay a more attention to the band's music. Again, unfortunately there is no single song or album that really hook me with BJH.

This album is by no exception even though I admit that the songs contained in this album is not bad at all and having good melody line. All songs are mellow in style with good tracks like 'Titles', 'Jonathan', 'In My Life' and 'Moongirl'. Prog? Nope. I don't think this kind of music is a prog music but it's OK as an easy listening music even though The Alan Prasons Projest does better than BJH.
