"a great album. It seems like this one has been passed over, but it's a shame; it's one of my favorite albums. It also looks as though it was never released in the States, at least not through Amazon.com. There's a lot of different sounds and moods; the slow, thoughtful "Nanzen Ji", the uplifting and beautifully inspirational "Laughter" and "Bright Sky", the positive energy of "A Montreal Song", with an excellent flute solo; and the bluesy fire of "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in my Hand" (long enough title! ) and "Feast of Fools"."
A Great Adventure!

"An album that links the aucustic, introspective, Christian side of Bruce's previous albums to the rock/folk, social justice side to be seen in future releases. Mix in Bruce's lyrical genius, love of nature, and stunning guitar picking and you simply have perhaps his most diverse and complete work. Especially refreshing is the addition of the gripping electric guitar riffs in "Outside a Broken Phone Booth..." and "Feast of Fools". A "must have" album for any Cockburn fan, but can also serve as a fabulous listen for those recently introduced to Bruce's music."
Vintage Cockburn. Buy it!

"I had this as an album back when vinyl was readily available, and just assumed I could get it on CD. It took me quite some time, and I finally found it through a record store in Canada. This is vintage Bruce Cockburn and a must have for both devoted fans and novices to his music. It represents his tremendous versatility, the various moods of his music, and his highly literate and poetic lyrics. There are true gems: Bright Sky, Can I Go With You (one of my all-time Cockburn favorites), and Laughter. The apocalyptic imagery and other-wordliness of Can I Go with You is perfectly presented as a gentle folk ballad that suggests a yearning for heaven, and is worth the price of the CD alone. Moreover, the guitar work is just awesome. By all means, buy it!"
