4 stars Often hidden in the shadow of the preceded record, “…Poseidon” is a very good album in its own right. Throw away all seeming similarities (simply imagine, that there were no ITCOTCK!) and you’ll get a wonderful Prog album that only 70s could have. Mellotron waves, acoustic and searing electric guitar passages, dreamy voice, a kind of concept around it all, some pretentious and noticeable influences from Avant and Classical music, wonderful artwork without both album and band names on it…Pure vintage Prog!!! Miserable are attempts of modern bands to reach the 10th dole of Classics greatness, and the better way I see for contemporary bands is to try to create something new (not to say “unique”!) instead of re-arranging and re-working old stuff. It was great in 70s, we like it because it’s Classic, but we don’t need pale copies now. But if you know a good one (I do know few examples!), let me know – I’ll definitely enjoy it ;)
