  • Arranger: Cat Stevens.
  • Following in the tradition of his previous effort, with a similar cover design and feel, Cat continued his painful journey through life. Even then, there was a sadness linked to his happy songs such as "Moonshadow," "How Can I Tell You" and "Tuesday's Dead." Our favourite school hymn was also given the treatment - how did he manage to make such a happy verse sound so sad? The answer, as we have all seen, was in himself; he was a rare songwriter but he was mostly a very troubled soul, something he seems to have resolved through his conversion to the Muslim faith. He won, we lost him.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/9/71, p.54) - "..there is "Moonshadow", a simple, unadorned song whose beauty lies in its mystery...He has an unmistakable style, a unique ability to combine sophisticated, commercial melodies with personal, almost primitive lyrics..."

CMJ (7/24/00, p.24) - "...Classic folk-pop....brilliant...gorgeously remastered...breathing new life into tunes...while remaining faithful to the albums' original majesty..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Stevens' work had become ever more complex since he left his 60s pop persona behind and TEASER represented the perfect fusion of his earnest delivery and songs, which increasingly reflected his thoughts on life's deeper meaning."
