3 stars The Load from USA was and is a quite unknown band in prog circles. Formed as atrio in 1973 releasing one album (if I don't count the later archival release from 1999) in 1976 named Praise the load and disbanded and gone into oblivion in 1979. Anyway this album is far from being bad, at least for me, I don't know why is so low rated, really. This is the type of prog dominated by keyboards, moog and synth in purest mid '70s tradition with classicla influences not far from ELP, Refugee, Greenslade or Yes tradition. I like that the album is quite dynamic in most of the parts with nice interplays between musicians, specially the keybordist Sterling Smith who has some spectacular parts on opening instrumental 11 min piece Fandango, quite great for my ears, the rest is also more then ok. All in all Praise the load was gone unotticed, even has some good moments on it. For me solid 3 stars for sure, maybe 3.5 stars in places, for the excellent opening track.
