3 stars Gnosis was a massive come-back for Gnidrolog. After 28 years of silence, they recorded an album nobody had really dared to wait for. Gnidrolog had disbanded already in 1972, with no come-backs in between, which made one think they would never do it. Gnosis doesn't hit jackpot, but it is not a bad album. The sheer quantity of music - these 14 tracks would have been published as a double album in the 70's - is vast, and some of the tunes work nicely. This makes me wonder, why didn't they do the record earlier.

Gnosis is not the most consistent album. There are some effective instrumentals, and the jewish influences of Reach For Tomorrow are exciting, but on the other hand some songs are close to easy-listening mainstream rock. However, Gnidrolog plays realy well, and obviously the band enjoyed making this album. For that reason it's even more intriguing, why they haven't continued, especially as the sleeve text says they are free from commercial pressures.
