4 stars Despite having been an avid prog head I don't recall hearing of these guys in the US during the 70's. My loss. The compositions are just as good as many of their English and American contemporaries. The main difference is they don't seem to take themselves as seriously as some of their peers did. The result is a bunch of solid, complex songs without pretension. They obviously had a lot of fun playing live. The guitar is out front most of the time but there is some excellent keyboard as well. At various times throughout the set there are similarities to Santana, Focus, Genesis and Rush. While not every song is an utter masterpiece there are no bad ones either. It's an enjoyable listen from beginning to end. Don't be concerned about the quality of the recording. It's very good.
