This Cat Stevens album dates from a time when his commercial sucess was less than his early years; and yet it shows his ability to write beautiful songs did not diminish in anyway, infact , like a good wine it matured with age.
The album contains many wonderful songs, especially 'Drywood' a very powerful personal song about the search for spirit and meaning in the world of the everyday. I personally consider this to be perhapes his greatest song.
To call Cat Stevens a troubadour is to use the word in it's proper context, his songs of love, pain at the state of the world, and the search for spirit are just as beautiful and as haunting as the original troubadours of 12th century Provance who sang about the same things.
This album may well have no songs on it you know, but dont let that put you off, as it is very much worth buying.
An extremily talented troubdour who touches your soul with the quality of his songs
