(All Album Reviews by jethro fish)
This is the second album of JT's "folk-period" released in 1978. This album is a bit more polished and restrained than Songs from the wood but should appeal to any prog-head anyway since there is plenty of interesting and intricate stuff on this record.
The quality of the songs are not far from its predecessor and, just a bit of trivia, I heard somewhere that this was the album that broke JT big time in the German market. Anyway, I definately recommend this album. It's full of premium JT and shouldn't be a disappointment to anyone who's in to progressive rock JT-style.
The strongest songs (IMO) is "No Lullaby", "Rover", "One brown mouse" (which was covered in an awsome way by Echolyn on the JT-tribute album "To cry you a song") and of course the title track.
My rating: 4 out of 5
