AllMusic Review by

A notable improvement on the first effort, with stronger songs and a more thoughtful instrumental approach, although the ISB comparisons remain inevitable. Some of the songs approach more conventional rock and pop construction; the opening "Hawk the Hawker," for instance, could have almost been a Harvest-era Neil Young tune, with its countryish ambience and weepy steel guitar. In hindsight, the group may have done well to modify their British psych-folkie vibe into a straighter rock mode that could have suited them better. The album's now been combined with their first LP on a CD reissue on BGO.
