A fantastic re—release, regarding first of all the half speed recording and the result of it. Totally recommend. Not to speak about this fantastic production at all.

What a brilliant album this is!!! Melodies just flow effortlessly and singers voice kind of embossed into and onto the music. Not a single note seems to be out of place.
Musically faultless, but not pretentious and pompose as many other examples of the prog movement. That honesty and "from the heart" approach for me puts Cressida on a different level.
One of my favourite records of all time.

One of Vertigo's finest hours, this is. It's progressive rock from Scotland, nothing less, but almost all irritating traits of that genre are carefully avoided. The mellow emotional singing is free from any mannerisms, the compositions are among the most moving in this realm. There is room for everyone in the production and the playing is refined, even restrained, but without sacrificing any of its splendour. Another point in favour: there is great variety of approach, both instrumentally and stilistically, yet the sound is immediately recognizable. Stately striding from one climax to another, this still stands as one of the highlights of early British prog. A record that proves that aspirations do not necessarily become pretensions. Melodically extremely affecting with too many highlights to mention, this comes wholeheartedly recommended.
