The second album from this British band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, timpani, organ, piano, woodwinds, vibraphone, harp and vocals.
The debut album was a pretty poor offering, a double album, of various genres. But I had hopes for this album and some improvements.
The band is still operating somewhere between blues, soul, progressive rock and jazz.
There is some methods in their music and on this album. A concept album if I am not much mistaken.
There is a lot of narrations here and a symphonic prog structure.
The vocals are good and some of the music is also rather good.
The music is dynamic and swirling in all directions. At thirty-seven minutes, this album is not outstaying it's welcome either. The narrations gives the album an identity too.
The music feels a bit dated in today's standards. Nevertheless, this is quite en enjoyable album and well worth checking out.
