Buddha and the Chocolate Box is the eighth studio album by Cat Stevens. The title came to Stevens when he was travelling to a gig on a plane with a Buddha in one hand and a box of chocolates in the other. He pondered that if he were to die in the plane these would be the last objects with him, and he would be caught between the spiritual and the material. The album leans towards the spiritual path, and is an indication of the direction his life would follow. All tracks composed by Cat Stevens. Back to Discography. Buddha And The Chocolate Box.

While Foreigner was Cat Stevens' fifth consecutive gold album and his fourth straight Top Ten hit, it actually marked a small drop commercially and encountered critical resistance for the lengthy suite that took up all of side one. Eight months later, Buddha and the Chocolate Box found Stevens back in England and back with producer Paul Samwell-Smith and second guitarist Alun Davies. It also marked a return to the simpler style of earlier albums. No song ran much over five minutes, the arrangements were sparer and featured more acoustic guitar, and the lyrics did not take off into discurs. If veteran Cat Stevens fans were nervous in the wake of the previous album's Foreigner sometimes sketchy experimentalism, they must surely have been gratified by the singer-songwriter's return to form here. 0 out of 5 stars Buddha and the Chocolate Factory, must buy for Cat Stevens fans.
