Founder member Gay Woods rejoined Steeleye Span in 1994 to help out on vocals when Maddy Prior had some problems with her voice. "Time" is the studio album that resulted a couple of years later. With Maddy's problems resolved, this was one of Steeleye's strongest line-ups vocally. Two songs in particular effectively showcase their individual styles. "Underneath Her Apron" presents Maddy in fine form, and has an arrangement that brings to mind the band's work on "Now We Are Six". Gay is equally good on "Go From My Window", an irresistible piece of folk/pop with some excellent guitar from Bob Johnson.
Other highlights are many and varied. "The Prickly Bush" has the classic Steeleye sound of soaring harmonies coupled with a driving rhythm. "Old Maid in the Garrett", with its title character desperate to tie the knot, adds a touch of humour, and builds up to a powerful instrumental workout. "The Cutty Wren" has an unusual arrangement, dominated by Liam Genocky's percussion effects. Bob Johnson's "Elf Knight" is a big production number, which starts out as a kind of supernatural love song, but soon takes a nastier turn. In Peter Knight's menacing "You Will Burn", witch hunters describe the fate that lies in store for their victim. Steeleye revisit past glories with a fiery reworking of "Corbies" (originally Twa Corbies") from their first album. Another Peter Knight composition, the poignant "The Song Will Remain", closes the album in effective style.
"Time" is a consistently strong piece of work, with every song having something to recommend it, and can be counted as one of Steeleye Span's best albums.

This is a fantastic album, and since I first heard it seven or eight years ago my tastes have matured significantly to be able to appreciate the ones I found "boring" last time.
Folk music is at its best when the creative talents of the musicians are stretched to the limit and they are able to create an aura of "other-worldliness" rather than just strumming their guitars and hoping for the best. The best track, "The Cutty Wren", is just such a track, and is the jewel in the crown. The music sounds slightly off-kilter, as if the tape has been slightly mangled in the machine, but the effect is powerful and atmospheric and all true Steeleye fans should buy this record for this song alone.
Of the others, "The Elf Knight" is another goodie, and like most of Steeleye's output doesn't mince words when dealing with the harsh "realities" of life. Again it has a certain ethereal quality. More down-to-earth tracks include "Twa Corbies" (a Steeleye favourite), "The Old Maid in the Garret" and "The Harvest of the Moon", both bouncy singalongs, and other ballads like "The Prickly Bush" and the one about the new baby, whose title I can't remember off-hand but was one of the ones which had grown on me since I borrowed the tape version from the library all those years ago. "Go From My Window" and "The Song Will Remain" are the least bouncy tracks, and not my particular favourites, but still, not too bad.
The only duff track is the excruciating "You Will Burn" - definitely a thumbs down for the screeching and caterwauling and evil lyrics. But since you can skip tracks on a CD, the presence of this one song should not stop you from enjoying this record like a cup of peppermint tea - highly recommended!

Having listened to this continually throughout my childhood, I have to say of all their albums this defines Steeleye Span for me, although others have observed that the keyboard comes into play a lot more than in their other albums. So what? If you're a fan, (at least for myself) the delight lies in hearing Maddy Prior's voice along with continually impressive music.
It carries you away to another world, and the songs stay with you for a long time. Not much short of a masterpiece.

Having been a big Steeleye fan in the early 70s I lost track of them as they gradually moved towards the commercial nainstream. Hearing this cd recently I was very pleasantly surprised - 75% is a good as the halcyon years - only the odd decent into contemporary mawkishness detracts. "You Will Burn" is easily the standout track - just listen to Maddy's "caterwauling" harmonies! Excellent stuff.
