Still my favourite!
on 25 November 2004
I bought this way back when it first came out and it took a while before I really enjoyed it because it was so different. Over the years it has consistently been the most rewarding album in my collection. The music is quite simple in some ways but in weird time signatures which are tough to begin with but seem perfetly normal after a few listenings. The atmosphere is wonderful and the sound is attractively acoustic. JMcL never played more beutifully than this and John Surman just fitted. Tony Oxley plays out of his skin but it all sounds very natural and relaxed. Brian Odges' bass sound is gorgeous.
I'd recommend this album to anyone who is open-minded and has the patience to get to know it. You won't regret it.
