2 stars 2.5 stars really!!

Sole album from an almost amateur group, and by 74, when they released it, it already sounded dated: when the album is not dishing out a fairly basic rock (the opening track), it is out for extended jam session on one riff, even if beautiful (the 13-min+ Behind The Universe), making you think of a hippie trip. In some of the better moments, they can sound like the gorgeous Sweet Smoke, but this is not a dominant characteristic.

But the rest of the album is a bit messy (production-wise too) and sloppy (the guitar break way too loud in the middle of Shooting At The Stars), but nothing catastrophic either. Graced with an intriguing B&W artwork, KH (what a dumb name) does not hold enough matter or depth for the discerning proghead to enjoy and get regular spins. Amateur stuff, even if this is not a flaw in itself, either. Naiveté has its charms, but its limits too. And KH's limits are quickly reached.
