4 stars Sure, it might be hard to get a hold of the music of CULPEPER'S ORCHARD (Haven't been album to find their second album yet myself) but the fact their self titled album won't even appear when you search under Denmark on the PA Top Albums' page is an injustice! Find it and start rating it people! It's worth the effort because what you have here is a genuine prog rock band that delivers both the prog and the rock. Lyrical quality is top notch and Cy Nicklin and Neils Hendrikson deliever them with a strong and versatile voices. CULPEPER'S ORCHARD members are no slouches with instruments in hand either. Neils Hendrikson dominates the lead guitar while also contributing some harpsichord! But this isn't about the work of one great instrumentalist as all four members show great skill at their craft and work together in perfect sync. The highlight tracks on this album would be highlights for any rock band: Mountain Music (both parts), Teaparty for an Orchard, Your Song & Mine, and Gideon's Trap. Don't be scared off by the odd little opening track Banjocul, this is just a nice little acoustic opener to a fantastic rock album. Certainly and excellent addition to any collection! While not quite an essential I'd consider my prog collection forever incomplete if I somehow lost my copy. 4.4999999 stars really.
