3 stars The male vocals leave a bit to be desired, but this one has some solid moves. Very much electric folk in spots with slamming drums and syncopations.

Good album but be warned that the officially released CD on Night Wing is one of the most poorly remastered progfolk CDs you will ever encounter. It's mastered like a modern heavy metal record with loads of compression, and the EQing is nearly insufferable. I believe that the tapes are probably lost for this album but just running a clean copy of the LP would have done this album much more justice.

There are two bootlegs on the market that actually sound better (one in jewelcase and one in mini lp that are the same mastering), but they are just taken from vinyl and are drenched in digital noise reduction instead of being properly declicked and treated with care. Hence, they also sound like garbage, but amazingly, the official release manages to sound even worse. When I first put it in I was shocked. I wonder if the people who worked on it have lost all hearing above 4k or something? The drag of this is that the original vinyl goes for big $$, and one is left with little choice but to support the artist and rarely listen to this because of digital earbleed. ;-(
