"This quirky CD of English "roots" music is an odd assortment of different styles of influence on the various artists presented here. There's the raw folksiness of "Claudy Banks", the old-timey Victorian feel of "A Lord Of Steam and Iron", but the best song of the bunch is a pleasant and breezy folk-pop number "Sail On By" by Oysterband, which owes a nod to Steeleye Span's more upbeat tunes. Said song makes the whole album worth it for just that song alone."
