Album Review

This chameleon of an album sounds more like ten different bands on a compilation than a unified Strawbs effort; fortunately, those ten bands are very good indeed. The album roars to life with spot-on imitations of Peter Gabriel in "To Be Free" and the Who in the windmilling riffs of "Little Sleepy." The bluesy torch song "Absent Friend" features some fine piano work and pensive electric guitar, while drummer Rod Coombes contributes a superbly withering (and still timely) blast at campaign finance and corruption in "A Mind of My Own." Rick Wakeman even shows up to pitch in a harpsichord part on the otherwise goofy throwaway "Tokyo Rosie." Unjustly neglected on its release by fans bewildered by the band's sudden reinvention of its sound, in retrospect this album easily stands among the best of their work. [Mercury's 2008 U.K. edition included two bonus tracks.]

Customer Reviews

There not just for eating!!!!!

I was introduced to the Strawbs by a nieghbour, Over the years he has introduced to alot of great bands, The Strawbs being one of them. He only had the orginal vinyl LP's, because nothing had been released on cd at that point. but over the years i have managed to collect there studio back catalouge. Nomadness is just a collection a great songs from the simple track Back on the farm, to the moving Golden Salamander.
