Nast Grumblie Grimblies Climbing Down your Chimney,
This review is from: In the Land of Grey & Pink (Audio CD)
In the Land of Grey and Pink is a prog favorite, often hailed as a masterpiece. I was new to Caravan and the whole 'Canterbury Scene,' and just got this because I've heard such good things.
If you're new to Caravan, think of the more Whimsical side of Yes, with a sprinkle of Syd Barret. The overall effect is something light, breezy and less than serious, however; when they want to they get some serious rocking done as well.
In The Land of Grey and Pink lives up to its reputation as not only the best Caravan album, but an all time prog classic, with a nice remastering job and interesting linear notes as well as quite a few bonus tracks, there's never been a better time to get your own copy.
My personal favorite tracks are the melodic and vocally impressive 'Winter Wine,' and the twenty minute plus epic 'Nine Feet Underground,' which is one of the most rocking twenty minute songs in the prog world.
Though for artistry and lush sounds, this album is no 'Selling England By The Pound,' or 'Animals,' its certainly a classic and well worth looking in to.
