Very atmospheric with Gardiner turning in a killer guitar solo that out of the blue transitions the song into a Celtic jig.

Nice tribute to their Scottish roots, but talk about an abrupt change in direction The instrumental 'Stretcher' opened with some classically-inspired Park keyboards before shifting into a platform for Gardiner to display some of his prettiest work. A corral of guitars points a relaxed sleeplike melody from which we are abruptly awakened to herald the enterance of Madame Doubtfire.

I guess it had some sort of satanic theme "sister of Satan" , but the over-the-top meltdown effects that led to the song's final collapse have always made me think Spinal Tap. Even though they had a fairly extensive recording catalog, Scotland's Beggars Opera remained complete unknowns to American audiences and not all that the well known outside of their native Scotland.

The disappointing sales of 's " Pathfinder " saw the band begin to polarize into different camps with different artistic visions. It also saw original singer Martin Griffiths and drummer Ray Wilson tender their notices.

Former Writing on the Wall singer Linnie Patterson and journeyman drummer Colin Fairley were recruited as replacements. It clearly wasn't a s original, or enjoyable as the three earlier studio sets, but it wasn't a total washout either.

Patterson wasn't as immediately likeable as Griffiths had been, but his voice was just as versatile, capable of handling everything from routine boogie rockers, to more challenging arrangements.

The album also benefited from the unofficial return of synthesizer player Virginia Scott to the lineup. Though she wasn't listed on the band roster, Scott received special credit in the liner notes and was responsible for two of the ten tracks 'Freestyle Ladies' and 'Morning Day'. So what did this puppy sound like?

Well longstanding fans were probably appalled by the band's decision to largely abandon their earlier progressive roots in favor of a more mainstream pop and rock orientation. That opened the door to taking stabs at a wide variety of genres that never would have been contemplated in the past, including country-rock 'Get Your Dog Off of Me' , pop 'La-di-da' , and bluesy-rocker Working Man'.
