Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
This is a great double album which I was very fortunate to find in great condition in a second hand shop on vinyl. It's definitely something you should look for if you love a lot of variety in your instrumental repertoire because this one has something for everyone and it is all done very professionally. I was lucky enough to get the full version because apparently the version listed on this site is missing two tracks. The first record seems to be more jazz influenced while the second record is more classically influenced. But the main thing you have here is a very exciting variety which still sounds quite cohesive and not contrived.

The second time around proved to be more effective for Sky. This double album is an ambitious but uneven effort. Kevin Peek displays a nice feel on the electric guitar and adds some needed spice to tunes such as "Hotta" and "Scherzo." The legendary John Williams proves once again that he has no intention of opening up his style, opting instead to play traditionally on the electric guitar. The band manages to loosen up a bit on the amusing "Tuba Smarties," yet it is Francis Monkman's virtuosic performance on "Gavotte and Variations" and Williams' rendition of "Dance of the Little Fairies" that make this the Sky album to get. ~Allmusic

'Sky' would appeal to those who enjoy the instrumental works of the Alan Parsons Project, early symphonic period of Mike Oldfield and '80s Camel. This first album did have some well-known classical pieces, the best of them Satie's haunting 'Gymnopedie', but the highlights of Sky's oeuvre were always their original music, and here Francis Monkman was front and centre. 'Where Opposites Meet' is essential listening, to see what can be done with a combination of classical and contemporary stringed instruments. 'Westway' is the album's other highlight: here we get splendid bass lines overlaid with playful acoustic guitar and harpsichord, underpinned by a driving beat. An excellent debut release.
