4 stars After major disappointments with such hard prog hypes as May Blitz & Irish Coffee, Night Sun is the jewel that makes taking chances on obscurities so satisfying. Many have noted the guitar & organ driven music that compares well to Deep Purple. They are correct. But imagine the Mars Volta putting out an album in the early 70s, with more concise songs, but still the same melting pot of the day's influences , musically. The singer sounds like Mars Volta's to the point where you wonder if he spent time in the U.S. (Daddy ???) . Some people that I've played this have said some of the instrumental parts remind them of Yes' solo forays, but the virtuosity is not quite there, and the musical motif not as well developed. But if you love hard edged prog, wish that Purple had further developed their prog tendencies, mixed them with a little psychedelia, then Night Sun is sure to delight you. Now if only we could get a few collabs from PA to throw in their two cents on this tasty platter ...
