3 stars I just love those early progrecords who did so much for other later progbands. This is one of them. It is'n just a good record, but also an early taste of the best Dutch guitarist of all time: Jan Akkerman, who would later join with Thijs van Leer and startup FOCUS. Also Jan Akkerman - In Profile is a musthave for al progfans. But that aside, going back to Brainbox.

The first side conains only bluessongs with some progressive influences. Side two could be called proto-prog. Singer Kas Lux (who's later work can not compaire to what he does on this album) does a great job on this record. Also drummer Pierre van der Linden (also later to be found in FOCUS) gives te record some great rythmical solo's on side two.

A good album with some great songs and the finest guitarwork - and - some early influence to the dutch progressive scene has been important for the development of it. So, three stars. A great bluesy rock album with progressive edges!
