Here it''s difficult not to run out of superlatives, as this sole album of a bunch of relative unknowns beats almost everything in the UK progressive field. Side one is a sheer delight with natural, yet deeply moving melodies over a background of lavish but tasteful mellotron, supported by an able rhythm section, in which the drummer employs uncommon military rhythms in an in obtrusive but very effective way. The vocals are extremely personal but never self-indulgent. These are a blissful 15 minutes. Side two doesn''t reach quite such a high standard, but is still very enjoyable and never less than good. This album could defend the right to exist for the whole genre. Most strongly recommended.
