This album marks the end of era, as it's the last collaboration between Thompson and producer Joe Boyd, perhaps the only man who played as large a part in defining British folk-rock as Thompson himself. It finds Thompson in fine form, featuring his characteristic compositional mix of the acidic and the elegant. "When the Spell is Broken" and "She Twists the Knife Again" are the kind of harrowing love-gone-wrong tales that Thompson weaves like no one else. "Love in a Faithless Country" is among Thompson's more musically ambitious pieces, dipping into the 20th Century classical bag of ostensibly discordant harmonies. Throughout, Thompson is ably backed by old Fairport Convention buddies Dave Mattacks and Simon Nicol, among others.
