I disagree with the reviewer above.
The album is titled " Enchanted Garden " and yet he complains that it is too " New Age "... With a title such as this one would hope for the dreamy landscapes that Judy creates with her voice. I think that this is a brave move for someone associated with traditional folk, and maybe that is why the reviewer was disappointed?

Even without the arrangements, the songs would stand on the beauty of her voice alone. Judy was fortunate in the early days to possess a voice of such great clarity and yes she still has it !
In my opinion the slight reverb enhances it ( but then again I am a big fan of reverb ! )
I do however agree that an acoustic album would be an amazing way to go, but for so long as Jude keeps creating such beautiful noises with her voice, to be honest she could sing " my old man's a dustman " and make it sound evocative and etheric !
If you like dreamy landscapes, mellow vibes and sympathetic fiddle then be enchanted by the garden... Judy's voice along makes it worth the purchase price. The arrangements are just a delightful bonus.
A cracking album !

Judy Dyble has a lovely voice and kudos to her to experiment with a new direction. Greville is off the mark, it would be wrong for Judy to live in the past, I think she is moving in a very positive new direction.

Format: Audio CD
Some years back, there was a Track (?) vinyl sampler that included Fairport Convention's debut single, 'If I Had A Ribbon Bow'. Lovely little song from around 1968 and with the clear and ringing voice of the late, great Sandy Denny making her mark.
Except it wasn't, it was Judy Dyble.
Though no slouch in the pipes department herself, Judy was pushed out of the band and went off to form Trader Horne with Jackie McAuley and make their one (rather good) album, "Morning Way".
A spell with the nascent King Crimson in its Giles, Giles & Fripp entity was short-lived and she disappeared from the scene but for sporadic appearances at the UK's Cropredy Festival.
Now she's back, and in common with many artists from that period who are still working, she's doing something 'new'.
With quasi-Arthur Rackham faeries and elves artwork and a performer roster including former High Tide and Hawkwind violinist Simon House (yikes!), you could be forgiven for expecting something akin to the fiery 'acid folk' temp-plated by ex-Curved Air vocalist Sonja Kristina.
Yet while there are elements of this psych-offshoot in 'Enchanted Garden', they are laced into the sonic landscape of New Age, and it's in this matching that the album begins to flag.
It's proficiently packaged and presented but the raw material is not consistently strong enough to make the wade through the electronica, which begins to swamp the performers. House's violin seems to have wandered off the mix while Judy's vocal is in a state of permanent reverb - a dish best served on special occasions only.
After a while, the whoosh, plink, plunk, tinkle of keyboard programming is akin to an astral voyage to shops that sell dream-catchers and wind chimes and smell like detonated bath-bombs.
Time to warm up, not chill out.
An acoustic set by Judy Dyble would help her work a passage back to fans of folk rock far more effectively and suit her voice better.

****************Personnel
Judy Dyble: Vocals
Simon House: Violin
Peter Pracownik: Slide, Acoustic, & Electric Guitars
Stevie B: Sax
Marc Swordfish: Percussion, Keys, & Programming

*****************Technical Stuff
Like so many rock/pop records today, there is no mastering credit on this one. I usually find that that is a bad sign, as it is in this case. Now, I'm not going to slam the mastering on this one because there is only one song on the cd that I would consider ruined ("Nimbus Thitherwood", check out between 06:00-06:50 yikes). The others are acceptable, although they are far from being high quality in terms of sound quality. You will find some clipping, mastering induced distortion, and a limited dynamic range on 9 of the 10 tracks. And on "Nimbus" well, it is just a sonic mess.

I think if you are buying a Judy Dyble album, you probably have good taste, like quality, and have enough intelligence to be able to work the volume knob, so I don't really know why they did not master this properly.

If you want more info on this kind of stuff, just google 'loudness war'.

*****************The Music
This inst just a folk album. Yes, the wonderful folk elements are here too: beautiful vocals, wonderful acoustic playing, and great introspective lyrics. But there is also a new palette of sounds brought by Marc Swordfish (not to be confused with the Mark II Swordfish). Swordfish is best known for his work with Astralasia, an ambient/techno/electronica group; and he has spent the better part of 2 decades honing his craft. So be prepared for interesting drum rhythms, ambient soundscapes, and other electronica style effects.
