Vinyl: Near Mint
Sleeve: Very Good++

Very surprised…some good music here..! 1979 is waaay late for this previously folk/prog outfit to still be releasing music in a somewhat hostile “new wave” environment when most of their contemporaries had (..maybe wisely) faded out and disappeared. The orchestral instrumentation of the earlier Lp’s has been replaced with a string synth sound here, and it actually works a lot better than you’d expect. Some elements of their earlier folk/prog sound remain…but mostly this is heavily leaning toward late 70’s pop. Not a masterwork…but a reasonable attempt to move with the changing music scene with a handful of very good tracks among the so-so stuff.
