A near-masterpiece of UK blues-influenced prog-rock from 1970 with forays into jazz territories. Well-structured and punctuated by interesting time changes and a skillful use of wind and string instruments, they are definitely at least on par with label mates Leaf Hound and Mellow Candle. The guitar playing of Chris Williams and the remarkable vocal timbre of the female singer also places the album a cut above many in the genre. For fans of UK prog à la Julian's Treatment, Catapilla, Affinity
