5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best underground acoustic folk-rock albums ever, 12 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Full Circle (Audio CD)
Forest were a gifted trio from North England who all wrote, sang and played numerous instruments on this, a compilation of their two outstanding albums.
The first album was preceded by one of the most beautiful singles of the 1960's - Searching For Shadows'. The album did not contain the single but complex hormonies and intriguing melodies puts the album a cut above the more traditional folk fringe at the time. Check out the haunting 'Don't Want To Go' and the hormonic beuty on 'Sylvie'.
The second album 'Full Circle' managed the near impossible task of bettering the debut eponymous album. Along with Fairport Convention and The Incredible String Band this album puts Forest firmly in the list of all time great folkesque bands.
With the exception of 2 tracks the album would be flawless. Highlights include the piano blues-rock track, 'Do Not Walk In The Rain' - showing that they are equally gifted away from straight folk the beautiful 'Graveyard' nodding to their classical musicianship, the exquisite harmonies on 'Famine Song' and the album track of the year in 1970, the timeless 'autumn childhood'.
These albums make you wonder what else the trio could have achieved had the music climate not changed to more about the visual side than the musical content in the 1970's.
