I once read that in the biographie of the band, the writer described this album as "holy". I can't think of a word that suites this album better. This is holy music.

The hangman's beautiful daughter, is one of the best British folk albums of all time. It's a stunning record full of wit, invention and originality. Every track has something to offer. Opener, Koeeoaddi there, is great, and, the minotaur's song, is wonderfully bizarre, a folk hymn gone mad. The centrepiece of the album is the jaw dropping epic, a cellular song, with, waltz of the new moon, and, swift as the wind, other highlights. There's nothing weak here. A genius record.

The best acid folk album of all time, there aren't any other contenders. Astounding album that has to be experienced as a continous piece of music, to get the full mind blowing effect.

This is an escapist album filled with magic and intrigue from start to finish. If you want to be take to a surrealistic dark forest with witches and amoebas this is a good place to start. It can take a while to get used to, but with an open mind could easily become your favourite. "May the long time sun shine upon you all love surround you
And the pure light within you guide you all the way on"

From hairymarx1 09/11/2011 12:47
This is an album of diverse and unique folk music very much of its time that encapsulates the hippie ideal. Each song is inspired by a different tradition and the album as a whole appears as a surreal collage of musical styles. Compared to their previous album, the piece is more extensive, more free and more full of sounds. Experiments abound in all the pieces and sometimes border on the chaotic acid-folk of the Holy Modal Rounders.
