5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect acid winter sounds, 2 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Music in a Dolls House (Audio CD)
Right from the galloping start of "The Chase" this album takes you on a lysergic maelstrom trip where the weather seeps in and blows through you ("Mellowing Grey", "Winter", "The Breeze"). Songs observe the strangeness of ordinary events (Never Like This, Hey Mr Policeman, See Through Windows) and lead you on a journey through love and time (Voyage, Peace of Mind, 3 X Time), the tracks swirling into one another with snatches of sounds already heard and sounds yet to come phasing in and out of the mix, imperceptibly taking you to a dark, still place and then returning you to earth thinking 'What the f*** was that?'. It also perfectly evokes the experience of winter days and nights in a mind altered state, accompanied by Roger Chapman as your weird uncle. Perhaps the most inventive album of all time and a must for all psychedelic meteorologists and for people who have been to their girlfriend's house for tea while out of their heads. It is so good that you'll only bear to play it twice a year and your friends will say 'it's a bit scary' then laugh nervously. Excellent.

Great review, but do you really see it that way? I see it as just normal, relaxed, mellow great piece of late 60s pop. Not sure what that makes me....! :)
