There are some rock albums that sell well because they're hyped up, there are some that sell well because they're good.
And unfortunately there are some that are brilliant that took a long time to get noticed. Love's "Forever Changes" is one example, Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" is another album that didn't chart when it was released - and so was "Everyone is Everybody Else". It took the bands later albums to chart before everyone realised what a superb album "Everyone..." is. Every single track is worth a listen - there are no fillers.
Dubbed later as the "Poor Mans Moody Blues", Barclay James Harvest later recorded a track of this name as an answer to their critics. Suffice to say, if you like the Moody Blues you'll like this album.

This was BJH's first album with Polydor and they obviously relished the increase in production values. Every song is excellent, disciplined and concise: there is absolutely no filler. John Lees excels, his songwriting is superb and his guitar is soulful- check out the solo on Paper Wings, it is almost painful in its sadness. The boys all provide excellent support, Mel's (RIP Mel) drumming is controlled and joyful, Wooly (RIP Wooly) serves up lashings of warm mellotron and Les provides excellent songs and bass. Wow! I first bought this after listening to a free disc given away by NME which had Paper Wings on it. Thirty two years on it still staggers me with its perfection. Hyperbole? Check it out!

barclay james harvest`s first album for polydor in 1974 is quite superb, gone is the overblown production and whimsical songs, in comes courtesy of roger bain, tight,sparse arrangements and a clutch off all-time classic bjh tunes. it starts with the magnificent "child of the universe", lyrically still as relevant today as the day it was recorded. the track concludes with a lovely understated john lees bluesy guitar solo. elsewhere, "the great 1974 mining disaster" is both a bee gees deconstruction and social commentary on the handling of the miners strike. les holroyd`s excellent "crazy city" ups the pace a bit, "mill boys/poor boy blues" takes things in a folk/country direction and segues straight into "for no one", a seminal bjh track. woolly creates a wall of sound on the mellotron, les and mel keep things tight, john lyrically bemoans the isolation of man and right at the end, lets rip with a multi-tracked solo which hendrix fans would approve of and possibly have dave gilmore running for cover. barclay james harvest have made many fine albums but this is their finest.

This is the album which turned Barclay James Harvest into an international success. Superb musicianship and top class material make this a winner. The best tracks are "Child of the Universe", "Negative Earth", "Crazy City" and "For No One". I can listen to this album again and again and not get bored! If you are unfamiliar with this band's music, then this is probably the best place to start. You'll be hooked after the first listen. Irresistable!

I first bought this album in the last millenium...well the seventies really!I've been recently re-introduced to the cd version and am as bowled over as 30 years ago.Excellent tracks by Lees are, for me, the backbone of the album but Holroyd and Pritchard also contributed greatly to the creation of this album.Add in the musical talents of Wolstenholme and you have a super all round album.
Stand out tracks for me are definitely '1974 Mining Disaster','Mill Boys' and the closer 'For No One'.That said though there is not a bad track here.Yes they certainly don't make them like this anymore!If you enjoy this you should delve more deeply in BJH.Try 'Time Honoured Ghosts'and 'Octoberon'... both older classic BJH.Slightly more 'modern' albums and still excellent are 'Victims of Circumstance' and my own personal favourite 'Ring of Changes'.All highly recommended!!

Barclay James Harvest's mix of the progressive and classical are at their very best in this wonderful album! The first track "Child of the Universe" says it all when it refers to us as "an endless dream, a gene machine, who cannot reason why?". I enjoy listening to this album as much now as I did when it was first released back in the 70's, BJH just do not seem to date at all!

Considered by many to be BJH's finest work, this truly is an excellent album.
It has the feeling of a complete package; from the dramatic opening bars of "Child of the Universe" to the last heart wrenching cords of "For No One" the album carries the listener on a wonderful musical ride through all types of emotion and feeling.
Other highlights include the stunningly beautiful "See Me See You" and the epic "1974 Mining Disaster". Mention must also be given to a fantastic performance by drummer Mel Pritchard. Not only did the least productive of the song writing members of BJH contribute to two of the songs here, the drumming performances on tracks like "Paper Wings" and "Crazy City" are simply superb.
Wonderful Album!

This comes in a lavish multi-folding digipak with a pretty expensive price tag. The highpoint is the new 5.1 mix. The disc label has the DVD-Audio logo on it but there is no DVD-Audio track just DTS and Dolby: a bit disappointing for lossless sound buffs. The major problem is the excellent track ‘For No One’ that is missing from both the new stereo mix and the 5.1 mix as the original multi-track master is long lost. For me that is a real issue as it means the album is incomplete and therefore seriously marred. This is made worse when the track forms such a beautiful bookend with “Child of the Universe” and is one of the best tracks on the album – some think the best. I believe that the original mix should have been used on the new stereo mix rather than omitting it. Of course there is nothing that can be done in terms of the 5.1 mix. Well, that’s wrong! When King Crimson’s album “In the Wake of Poseidon” was mixed in 5.1 the same problem was encountered with the long track “The Devil’s Triangle”. That track was very cleverly upmixed to 5.1 from the stereo master with success and allows the listener to experience the whole album. When the same problem was encountered when Roxy Music’s “Avalon” was mixed in 5.1 people used their brains to produce a 5.1 version of the track “India” from the only existing stereo master. Surely someone could have found a solution for this album!
