5 stars Completely unbelievable.

This band is a UFO amongst all oddities in the prog world. What kind of imagination does it takes to write this kind of stuff? It goes from A-Z in the same song MANY times, which means it's 75 songs ideas crammed in one record of 7 songs. And the musicianship is probably one of the fastest, most skilled I've ever ecountered (a blend of Gryphon, Yes and Gentle Giant); which means they pound their instruments like blacksmiths on a poor anvil.

Take a perfect Jon Anderson clone and grow him a thick beard and dress him medieval. Good. Then, give him a lot of stimulants and some woodwinds. Okay. Finally, make him write lyrics after depriving him from 72 hours of sleep.

Absolute masterpiece of strangeness.

Menswear | 5/5 |
