Album Review
Dick Benedict
Reviewed 2007-07-30
Rerelease of 1970s hippy folk with religious undertones. Think renaissance fairs, lord of the rings, and church. Fairly DIY. Woman's voice is vaguely like Josephine Foster. There is something uncanny and even pathetic about these songs...can't put my finger on it. FCC clean. Picks 18,9,12,8.

*1-Broad, simple, soaring folk. Mandolin on top.
2-Fragile. A bit pensive.
*3-Similar guitar work as 2, bit faster. Female singer.
4-Vaguely celtic. Sitar. Sad.
5-More varied guitar playing and melody.
6-Mid-slow. Homey folk. Love song.
7-Galavanting guitar with soft sing-along sections. "Inspirational" recorder at the end.
*8-Delicate rain-drop picking. Long instrumental that nicely evolves.
*9-Folk sea shanty. Fake british accents.
10-Religious and steady.
*11-Slow, low harmony. Mandolin. Seasonal/Wandering traveler motif.
*12-Fast. Riding a horse almost. Aggressive M and F vox.
13-Mid. fast. Religious/psych lyrics. Renaissance feel.
14-Gentle religious song.
15-Brief hymn. Organ.
16-Sad, empty piano.
17-Brisk religious song about jesus.
*18-Nice spoken word about Satan.
19-Mid. fast folk rock. Drums. F vox. singing about the apocalypse. Slows at end.
