Avis sur l’album

There's not a single June Tabor album that isn't worth owning, and this one is as worthy as any other. That said, "Reynard the Fox" didn't really need a phase-shifted synth accompaniment (note the recording date), and the line "A whole generation that were butchered and damned" doesn't need any more brutality in its delivery than is already contained in its imagery.
