3 stars Lost in the crowd.

A quaint little band that released one self-titled and fairly intriguing pop-prog album with many pleasant melodies. I guess the thing that strikes me the most, is how much the singer sounds like a Vietnam era musician, that quality in his voice that you know couldn't come from any other era.

There's plenty of mellotrons here as well, so if you're looking to scrap up all the classic 'tron albums, don't forget this one. Golden Fleece and Grail are my favorites, with some really snazzy melody lines and great band work all around. Not overly complex, but sticks to the "fruit" of the song which is admirable, and enjoyable.

Some of this material is a little too "poppy" for my tastes, although much of it is done with a keen sense for taste and direction. The end of the album isn't near as good as the beginning, but I certainly would have liked to hear more from this output. It's a shame they would be a one album band that never really got the recognition they probably deserved for the time.
