    General CommentAn absolutely haunting and evocative piece which always puts me in mind of the yorkshire moors(especially near Top Withens/Howarth ).The guitar counterplay between steve and mike was never better!.I also have very fond memories of banging my head to the "....in that quiet earth". section of this track on friday nights-just before going out and having my pre-weekend gallon,in the 70s.

    General CommentThe two instrumental tracks near the end of the album, 'Unquiet Slumbers for the Sleepers' and 'In That Quiet Earth', are the final words of the book Wuthering Heights.
    I'm sure many readers know this already but I think it should be mentioned.

    Song MeaningI think the song means; unquiet slumbers relates to the lack of rest sleepers have on a main line railway, what with high speed trains rumbling over them every 5 to 10 minutes.......What a band, they could even write a meaningful song about a humble lump of wood.
