4 stars Who needs drugs with that kind of music?

Humbly, this has to be by a long shot the sickest UFO of all my collection; but at the same time, the Yes and Harmonium reminders (vocals, guitars, bass and keyboards..well,er..everything finallly) are putting us in some known ground. I founded out that this is a demo that was supposed to be send to record companies. The company guys must've let it slip because this somewhat rough recording is mind- boggling! Of all the obscure bands that made the cut: Neuwastein, Locanda Della Fate, England and such: they get gold medal!

Their aptitude to create (very) complex songs is beyond my comprehension, and to give you an idea, it gives Gryphon some serious competition (and to me, they squash'em bad). In all my years of listening music, nobody ever tried as hard as Gryphon to catapultate such density in a record; well Yezda Urfa is giving a lesson to all those who think they're all that....this is how it's made!

Completely crazy lyrically (read LSD) , this is an outsider amongst the outsiders, the ultimate, obscurest band I've known. Amateurs of hidden-in-your-uncles's-basement-in-a-dusty-pile-of-old-crap-records, you'll find a real diamond.

I will not listen to it often, truly disturbing.
