Great folk metal album, best Skyclad imho. It includes all my favourite Skyclad songs: Stranger in the garden, halo of flies, another fine mess, and the masterpiece The present imperfect. The latter song ranks among the top 50 of my all-time top metal songs.
That said, it is too unfortunate that this album also contains several filler songs, almost too many. A haircut by 3-4 songs would have helped here. Nevertheless I have some 8.5-8.6 to assign here.

Great album indeed, but not their best I also agree that Stranger In The Garden, Another Fine Mess, and The Present Imperfect all rank among the best Skyclad songs ever. That said, I find Halo Of Flies a bit weak, like Brimstone Ballet and (worst of the bunch) Turncoat Rebellion
