Although Sweet Child is usually cited as the group's high-water mark, Basket of Light finds them at their most progressive and exciting. Highlights of this album - which actually reached the Top Five in the U.K. - include the buzzing jazz dynamics of "Light Flight, " and their moving rendition of the traditional folk song "Once I Had A Sweetheart, " their reinvention of the girl-group smash "Sally Go Round The Roses, " and "Springtime Promises, " one of their finest original tunes.

- Richie Unterberger (AMG)
