4 stars Great and very much underated band this one. They supported ELP a few times in the early seventies and both albums were produced by GREG LAKE. Presumably, he helped to get them the deal with prog label, Harvest. Working on the basic, guitar, bass, drums principle, they deliver some catchy numbers, that benefit from great instrumental passages and time changes. GREG LAKE in my opinion has done the band a lot of justice with his production, as the music sounds fresh, clear and has really stood the test of time. A great addition to the music is the frequent use of the VCS synth, with gives it a lot of added texture. (I wonder if Greg borrowed this from Mr Emerson??) Sadly as is the case with a lot of these early 70's outfits, they disbanded too soon, recording one more equally great LP Highly recommended.
