A lengthy period has elapsed since their last release, so this new offering will be eagerly awaited by Caravan fans. I don't think it will disappoint either, the album has all the hallmarks of the typical Caravan sound with the instantly recognisable vocals & keyboards. There is also some moody sax & guitar work reminiscent of Camels Andy Latimer on "It's getting a whole lot better", another track that I am sure will become a concert favourite is driving rocky number called "Revenge". All in all a good album to add to the Caravan collection maybe not quit "Grey & Pink" but 4 out of 5 none the less.

A really super album with thoughtful lyrics and versatile backing. I bought this after hearing them play live.Track 5 is particularly beautiful and worth putting on loop if you need to relax or chillout. It is reminiscent of the music of Penguin Cafe by Simon Jeffes for whom Geoffery Richardson played. Track 8 also has the same feel but more so and quite haunting. He clearly wants the thread to live on. The same mood begins track 6 but it soon bursts into a more lively toe tapping rhythm. They are indeed a talented mix of musicians and Pye's voice clearly sings the catchy lyrics. I am a "born again Caravan fan".
Overall it is a refreshing CD with a hints of the sixties, jazz and rock with a smattering of classical tones, but just incase you start to feel sleepy, bars of jazz wake you up. Get to a concert if you can. It is worth it, but until then, buy the CD. It is a real treat.

I've been getting into listening to Caravan ( again ) after a break of ohh? several years due to the recent re-releases. I originally listened to them about the time of Blind Dog and Better By Far and those , along with Grey and Pink , remain my favourite albums.

So having bought some of the re-releases I thought I'd go for the new one. It's an album I'd recommend strongly to anyone who likes Caravan. It's a very fine album with some stunning guitar from Doug Boyle. It's a delight to hear soloing that flows along with the music. I'd forgotten that's one of the things Caravan do really well !

This album sounds like Caravan doing a "Camel"

Some great inmstrumental sections with superb guitar work that is very reminiscent of later Camel.
I wasnt expecting much to be honest.
Most bands have a "golden" period that they never recapture.
This isnt Caravan trying to relive their early days, but it has elements of that, along with elements of the former bands of some of the players.

All in all a very decent effort.
If you like Camel and the more instrumental early Caravan you will find much in this CD to enjoy.

It's Christmas night and I'm listening to one of my CD gifts for the third time today. This is vintage Caravan brought up to date with the addition of tremendous guitar work by Doug Boyle - now sadly departed, complemented by old and new favourites in Geoff Richardson, Jim Leverton et al.
Buy this record - if you're already into Caravan you'll love it. If you're just coming across them this is a quality band who have truly stood the test of time - and for all the right reasons! Why this band is not recognised alongside other rock greats I 'll never know.

Yes it is Caravan although not as was. I cannot say this is back on form, but it is a Caravan release for sure, just at times a little weak and rock and roll. But there are some classic sounds here to be heard, mainly in the lyrical and vocal content, but on some of the overall playing also.
All old fans will, I believe like what they hear, most certainly on the slower songs where the lyrics have always made there impacted. But age has also played a part in the songs, were you can hear that there is a little of the "going through the motions" takes place.
I do not say this easy, as they are very much a must have band of the late sixties / early seventies, but time plays its little tricks on all of us. There is better new music out there, but we had to have these kind of bands to keep it going.
I have to say that the more listens one has, one may think this is as good as the old Caravan, but although not, they may just have moved on, which is great for a seventies band, as most become boring. The song construction may not me as strong, but that matters not too much, this is a darn good album.
Carry on there is still more to say.
