"I agree with dagwyn. This Span effort deserves at least a solid 4 stars overall. So my 5 should bump the average up. Virtually every track is memorable and the production effects didn't bother me in the least. I come back to this album frequently for its unique, somber mood, creative arrangements and emotional music and lyrics. It's become a part of my life. Yes, it IS different than all other Span's. That's partly what makes it special. Definitely get this one!"
Even typical Steeleye Span beats others' best

"I recall being thrilled to discover that there was yet one more
release from Steeleye Span, a group with an astounding sound
that one of my friends credits with getting him though the
Disco Era. The tunes are memorable; I find myself playing them
back in my head quite often, even though it has been quite a
while since I have listened to this album, which surely deserves
a higher absolute rating than it was getting here."

"After reforming in late 1980 for the superb "Sails of Silver," Steeleye took another six years before recording and releasing this album, which became their first without cofounder and long time member Tim Hart who left the band when he quit the music business altogether. The resulting lineup change shows in this album which is a good one, but not up to the band's usual lofty standards.Several songs qualify as highlights. "Edward," "Isabel" and "Lady Diamond" among them, and a new version of "Blackleg Miner" (which originally appeared on their still amazing first album, "Hark! The Village Wait") which is every bit as spooky as the original. Meanwhile the song "White Man" intrigues with its production that, oddly enough, manages to simultaneously compelling and off-putting. (A better version of the song appeared a few years later on the "Tonight's The Night - Live!" album).So "Back In Line" proves to be a transitional album for Steeleye. A good one, but one more than overshadowed by the band's more compelling legacy."
