4 stars I got this cd from cd universe,and all i can say is,it was a $20 investment well worth the price! Onto the songs: ''Naked Death''(15:38) begins with a drum roll and some sax work for the first 46 seconds. Then,the music kicks in and moves at a steady pace,with some guitar rock,jazz,and funk influences throughout the song,ending with singer Anna Meek singing,who sounds like Nico. The next 2 songs "Tumbleweed'' and "Promises'' are great guitar/jazz-rock songs,though I will say that the "Tumbleweed'' song has a bit of a pop edge to it for a little bit. The real highlight is the 24 minute song "Embryonic Fusion'',which starts off with a bass riff and cymbal tapping for the first 30 seconds of the song. Then, the music kicks in and moves at a kind of moderate pace,with plenty of jazz sounds and guitar rock. At about 8 minutes into the song, the tempo picks up to a quicker pace,and keeps going for about the next 11 minutes,and the tempo pace slows down for another 4 minutes,while building up,and you can hear bits of free-jazz in the background. At 22.5 minutes into the song, the tempo picks up for the remaining bit of the song, which fades out at 24 minutes, instead of stopping at 24 minutes. On a scale of 1 to 5, I give this 4.33 stars. It is too bad that this album never got much attention when it came out. This is another one high on a list of prog-rock cd's that I like, and if you like late 60's/early 70's jazz/guitar rock, then do not overlook this. I recommend getting this!
