Barclay James Harvest began as a psychedelic-influenced prog-rock outfit, but by the time they really reached their stride with 1974's EVERYONE IS EVERYBODY ELSE, they had streamlined their sound into a lambent, melodic style triangulated somewhere between Pink Floyd, the Moody Blues, and late-period Beatles. With John "Wooly" Woolstenholme's Mellotron providing orchestral backdrops and John Lees contributing lyrical, not un-Floyd-like guitar leads, the band unfolds one elegant tune after another on what has come to be regarded as one of the finest moments in the BJH discography.
