A Space in Time - Chrysalis 1971
With the acoustic guitar more in front, however, several of the songs start gently with the acoustic in the foreground, before the song gradually takes the more familiar form. This feature gives the album a lightness that is refreshing.
Alvin Lee is an excellent guitarist who, on this album, fortunately does not tend to play lenghty solos. Lee is no great songwriter, but the album does contain quite successful compositions. "Here they come," "I'd Love to Change the World" and Hard Monkeys "(fine surprising chord changes here) stand out. Interesting is also "Over the Hill" which has received an unusual strings arrangement. Fine Mick Jagger-like vocals here.
"Let the Sky Fall" sounds like a re-working of "Good Morning Little School Girl", but otherwise this a fine track too."I've Been There Too" brings with its two chords change in the verses memories towards the Donovan classic "Season of the Witch".
Could well be considered as the group's most complete album.
