I'm really curious what step will this band make after a debut if it didn't bound to happen they were an one-off. Would they dilute themselves, or grow into something more complex? This album is a good soil for both scenarios...

This is a pleasant album if you're into seventies rock, but nothing to die for. It remands me a lot of BLOODROCK - in hard rock approach, and in vocal lines. Hints of symphonic rock here and there, and some unusual solutions (but not unheard nor avangarde) are placing this act a step above the mediocre crowd from the same era. Nice background flutes, dry synths. And that's about it. If you expect mellotrons and brass gallore, forget it. If you expected complex arrangements, forget it. This is homogenic, it contains that continuous float (unlike many debuts), but it's just not standing out of the crowd. When I listen to this album, it passes without noticing. It's very god as a background (for a proghead).

Of course, there's more going on, but I'm not sure is it really worth it. So with a full respect, I'm giving it not so high rating. You might give it a try if you came across it, but don't you dare to search for it for the sake of being an obscurity.
