Consumer Guide Reviews:

Grave New World [A&M, 1972]
An acoustic-gone-electric work about cosmic verities, many of them glum. It even comes with its own woodcuts . . . they're not really woodcuts, but that only goes to prove how plastic everything is these days. I should bless those who cause me pain, it says here, but that surely doesn't apply to a record that gives me the blahs. D
