3 stars 3.3 stars really.

I agree with the other reviewer that this is not an essential album. It's still good none-the-less. I may get some disagreements about this but I personally am reminded of the Quicksand "Home is where I belong" in parts of this album. Even tho they're from 1970 Connecticut, there seems to be elements of West Coast Harmonies and some touches of melancholia that the Quicksand album brings to mind. Mostly keyboard/guitar driven prog/pop with some nice flute elements thrown in. The vocal harmonies at times gives a Crosby Stills Nash feel to it. I'm also reminded of the vocal harmonies from some of the Pell Mell (see reviews) albums from Germany.

I'm still in search in some hidden surprises from the golden age. This was one of them.

If anyone out there has the Quicksand "Home is where I belong" album and enjoys that, I think you may wish to try this album out too although I think the Quicksand album is a little stronger. These go nicely side by side. A good effort but I can totally understand why they were doomed from the start. Too proggy to be a "top 40" of the day but not proggy enough to be considered more than a 3rd/lower-2nd tier prog album.
