3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

This british band with intresting and odd name in same time, must be considered one of the forgotten and unnoticed prog rock bands from first half of the '70. Nevertheless they were quite popular among students playing a lot in colleges in 71-73 when they even release their one and only album in 1973 selftitled. Well, what I heared here is pretty good from start to finish, imagine you listen to Wishbone Ash with keyboards, really good, twin guitar and melted with some fantastic keyboards passages. Aswell I like the voice of Dag Small, there were three vocalists singing in same time, but I thing Small's voice was the one who really impressed me. Pieces like When You Lay It Down or Judas return who really sounded to me like early Yes around The yes album combined with with Flash around In the can period 1972, maybe you can add Argus from Wishbone Ash aswell, really nice pieces for sure. Another goody is ending almost 9 min Decline And Fall with again yes flavour but in the end not a copy/paste band for sure. A worthy album in my opinion who didn't get the chance . 3.5 stars , I really kine it. Keyboards and guitars are working at full capacity here. Intresting as the name and odd aswell is the art work. They disbanded in 1975 and gone into oblivion but morphed a year later into The movies with a comercial pop rock sound who were aswell doomed for eternity when punk rock enterd on the scene and killed the chances of succes for countless bands from that period.
