    Even though they were played to death in the 80's after Brothers in Arms came out they certainly knew how to turn out a tune or two, marvellous stuff. Every rock fan should have at least this compilation of theirs IMO.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Another recent acquisition from the vinyl trading, one I have not listened to for years, I had forgotten how good it is, a challenging listen in parts but at the same time extremely good.

    It was their 2nd most successful after "In The Court of the Crimson King". It is ranked number 1 for albums in 1974 on BestEverAlbums, and there are some extremely good albums in 1974. https://www.besteveralbums.com/years...ir=desc&page=1

    The musicianship on it is quite stunning, and musically/rhythmically some challenging compositions. It's not for everyone but I would recommend a listen.

    A great Album, one of my all time favourite groups through all the line up and style changes. It's hard to pick a favourite, but I'd go for 'Larks tongues in aspic' if you pushed me...
