It had been a difficult time for Magna Carta, gone were the ideas of "Seasons" and the theatre of "Lord of the Ages£....on had gone the seventies to the point of standing at the gates of Punk Rock. Much water had flowed under the bridges of the bands collective connections and all looked to be uncertanty ........however, it is at times of change and pressure that a bands true metal begins to show and it is in the reflections of the past that we see the shining future to come......On this album Chris Simpson and the team show that they are going to be survivors and trailblazers of the future of Folk Rock......Songs about "Putting it all back together" ....."Wild birds" ......"A princess" and the times things take ( "Took along time" ) show that this band are as eternal as the Yorkshire stone and countryside that shaped its founder.................A feest for the ear......well worth buying .....
