This album, compared to its predecessors, is a more generic folk album. The band was continuing its exploration into progressive rock and synthesizers in order to create a more commercial-orientated sound. This was due more to Heron's influence over the band. As a result, the band would lose much of their trademark style that made them popular in the British counterculture of the 1960s.
Most of the tracks on the album take inspiration from European and American tradition. Past albums included such a theme alongside eastern culture.
