4 stars A masterpiece of music, a psychedelic nugget, and one for the ages, this keyboard driven monster begs to be heard again. The first album was better over all, but the four part track Flight is the best thing Rare Bird ever did. Sounding somewhat like a european Vanilla Fudge these fellas raise the prog bar even further by discluding strings. In fact they proved that you can be very heavy without all the metal.

The choir lifts, the Hammond wafts, and sometimes its sounds like they did this in a giant sewer pipe. If you like UH's Look At Yourself, or say anything by The Nice, yer gonna love this one. It is a very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
