Music - 5 stars

More of Anderson's' flute work and English folk side emergence's here, but the band rocks hard enough to piece together an impressive album.

Anderson continues to hone the band's sound to razor sharpness The songwriting is top notch. "With You there, To Help Me" is both sad and inspiring and "Nothing to Say" is instantly memorable.
There are no misfires on Benefit, and this set contains the hit "Teacher".

The record goes to #11 in the U.S as the group becomes a major attraction in the states.
Although not a gate fold, the Reprise release features another appealing album jacket.
