Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is one of the best "Proto pop-progressive" albums in the UK, which arrives quite late in the course of 1971 (by regarding of such " ELP's prog debut album" and also the album "Fragile" by YYES, which were more refined, being a couple of "true progressive and more mature jewels"); but if you are fond of bands such as for instance MOODY BLUES and BARCLAY JAMES & HARVEST, you should appreciate also this ensemble, featuring Pique Withers (you will find him with DIRE STRAITS) on drums and glockenspiel too. A cult band performing a mellow "Proto-pop progressive" album, becoming a classic after a few years. Along with other bands like GRACIOUS or FAMILY in their less "easy" arrangements, they shared all together the "UK pop progressive scene" of the early seventies. Actually its righter score should be "3 stars and an half" at least, but I don't like this genre, in the vein also of bands such as FANTASY (the authors of "Paint a Picture" or today the modern retro-band from Italy "MAN OF LAKE", and in a lot of circumstances the Sweden ensemble of "LANBERK" as well!!)
