The second album consisted of shorter tracks that didn't quite reach the same standard as the material on "De Homine Urbano". There's nothing bad here, but nothing really outstanding either, just an average slice of your typical organ/guitar-based early 70's prog. Among the better tracks we find the spacey "Equatorial Rain", the four-part "The Invasion" and the mellow ballad "Shadow of a Gipsy". The title-track is a kind of a 60's influenced pop song that must have sounded dated already in 1971. "Sweet Jolly Joyce" is bluesy, psychedelic progressive rock of the generic kind. "Acheron" is on the other hand a nice, jazzy instrumental number with some vibraphone, and the progressive version of The Beatles' "We Can Work it Out" is also interesting. But the band's overall lack of an original sound becomes a bit more problematic when their own material on the album isn't stronger than this. Personally I think "De Homine Urbano" is a much stronger album, and I would recommend that one over "Green Man".
