Personal Review

I have written more about this album than any other. It is simply by far and away my favourite album of all time as you will find if you follow my musical links throughout our pages.

It is hard to put into words the importance of this album to me. It contains my favourite three BJH songs - Mocking Bird, She Said and Galadriel and has an overpowering beauty.

There has never been an album to equal this one for mood setting. It reminds me vividly of a part of my life long since gone.

I love to play it late at night on headphones and with all the lights off. Then the swirling melodies remind me of great times.

To me this is as perfect as rock music gets.
