3 stars Stackridge debut album is a very pleasant surprise. This is not my preferred style, but I think there are beautiful moments on the album.

The style is folky prog rock with beautiful vocals and vocal harmonies and some nice instrumental work underneath. I prefer Stackridge when they play the more sombre and mellow parts. A song like Percy the Penguin and the first part of Three Legged Table are beyond beautiful in my opinion. Those parts remind me of Genesis subtle acoustic parts. There are two other standout tracks here. The intriguing instrumental Essence of Porphyry and the folky epic Slark which is 14+ minutes long. The many folky parts does drag this down a bit for me as this is not my prefered style. I think Stackridge have a lot of great ideas though, some of them pretty progressive. Just listen to Three Legged Table which starts out with mellow subtle acoustic playing and ends with a rocking folky part.

The musicians are very good and the vocals are also very good.

The sound quality is very good for the time, but I┤m not to fond of it personally. This is my personal opinion though and I┤m sure others wont have the same problems. The drums just irritate me somehow.

This is an album full of great ideas and some really great parts. Everything on the album is not to my liking though and therefore I┤ll rate it 3 stars. Good but not excellent.
