"One of the greatest of British psychedelia albums, as many forget the powers within...
Psychedelic keyboards, hard guitar solo a la CREAM, British folk and music-hall, jazz paranoia and Indian raga with overall Winwood's soulful voice make an album that can be enjoyed over and over. Mason gives important musical component with his guitar, bass and sitar, offering one of the best raga moments in rock music, "Utterly Simple", which rivals the Fab Four's "Within You, Without You" . Each song has its place on this mature record, but the title track - allegedly drug-influenced imagination - "Dear Mr. Fantasy" comes off as a heady classic that rivals any of the top psychedelic grooves of the time (including trippy stuff The Beatles were doing) -- all the standardised tropes- production effects such as phasing, stereo gimmicks, lysergic lyrics and a large helping of Eastern mysticism- are all in place, but yet the overall musicianship here is stronger and the musical net is cast wider."- Popsike
