4 stars I think that Ultimate Spinach deserves the attention of all 70s prog heads because their music is a genial cocktail of kick ass 60s pop and infectious-fuzzy-moody-psyhedelic epics. I consider their first as an obvious classic; Behold And See presents a highly inspired musical trip but not all songs are masterpieces. The two first compositions really deserve a listening and I consider them to be among the best pieces written by the band. The title track is a bluesy trained song with sensual stoned female vocals. It features beautiful, melancholic melodies, nice fuzzy guitars. Moody acid bluesy rock at its best. Mind Flowers is just awesome, this song gives me shivers, a stoned journey into intense, delicate emotions. The rest of the album shows a rather different direction with a more naive hippie-like flavour but always inspired with great Hammond organs and good technical sequences...The atmosphere sounds smart but too 60's pop orientated for my tastes. Anyway this album delivers some magical musical moments that I recommend to all nostalgic prog-heads.
