This goes further in the orchestral direction hinted at in their first two albums, but this time it's mixed along rather classical lines too. The drums are very subdued, and the whole thing sounds like a classical album. This has its pluses and minuses; the first side is uniformly excellent if you enjoy classical music (I recall hearing one track on Radio 3, just after Beethoven at the time). It's astounding that this was played live by the musicians themselves (and it was; I too was priveleged to hear the original Enid). Rock fans might want something with a bit more power, and would be better served by Summer Stars or Six Pieces. Also, Albion Fair never really worked, in my view, and could do with a complete rethink. It's starts well, but rolls on and on like some imitation Mahler symphony; you keep thinking it's going to end and it carries on! Had The Enid maintained the standard of the first side this would have got more stars!

There is much great music in this CD, but it is all so badly recorded that it may put off the modern listener, which is a big shame.

The sound quality is absolutely awful(recorded in a mad rush), but that mustn't detract from the fact there is a wealth of interesting musical ideas going on here with influences from many classical composers (Bruckner scherzo, Bach Fugue, Elgar pomp etc...).

Just occasionally it sounds like a fairground organ churning around, but on the whole the range of colours the band conjures up matches an orchestra.

Highlight? The opening of Albion Fair.

I just wish someone would re-record this using modern tecnology as it could be one of the best "prog" albums ever (sorry Mr Godfrey !)

Then I'd give it 5/5

Summary - Classical prog of interest to prog archaeologists

Anyone hearing this wonderful music would be forgiven for thinking that every part of it is the result of studio trickery. It's not.

I had the honour of hearing The Enid write and rehearse a lot of this stuff and they could play it LIVE. No computer backing (this was the 70's), no off-stage musicians, just a bunch of talented guys who made glorious music.

I have said many times that The Enid are the most under-rated band EVER. Listen to this and I'm sure you'll agree.
