Wonderful progressive folk that (particularly on the first half or so) sounds like you handed a typical 70s prog band folk instruments and a fantastic female vocalist. Prominent bass, violin, and often piano along with acoustic guitar weave my favorite folk album of all time. No track is bad, but my personal favorites are "Cogwheels, Crutches and Cyanide", "Magical Mary" and "The Duke of Beaufoot", which are essentially the album's epics, and the meat of the album. The shorter tracks (even the ones that are essentially long interludes, like Captain's Log) complement them perfectly. Last mention - the lyricism here is often great... I usually don't care much about lyrics but this is an exception.
