  2. Having seen Roy Harper touring this album back in the 70s, this brought back memories. There are some stunning tracks on here, Hallucinating Light and When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease, incredible musicianship and Harper's very personal take on the world.

  5. Roy Harper does indeed take a prog rock turn here. And it's an extremely enjoyable album to me.
