5 stars Surprisingly great. A very original and authentic band. Of all albums recorded on that year of 72, this particular one deserves a place among the top 5. Lady Lake is Gnidrolog's masterpiece and a progressive masterpiece, no doubts 'round here. Every song has a vailed charm and show how rock was evolving and which ways would be taken from then on. The sax and flute are more than details or support arrengements, they're part of the band and its sound (as they already were in JT and VDGG, for example). The cover is their sound in paint. It's weird, disturbing, obscure an new. The atmosphere created is a nice mixture of VDGG's dark passages and JT's Benefit with sharp vocals and simple(but effective) lyrics. Same Dreams is a ballad, a very beautiful one. I could never be a Soldier and Social Embarassment are long and pleasant. Ship is very redundant but it's a great song after all. The jazzy title track and the mysterious A dog with no collar add extra emotion to the record. Smashing!
