2 stars I feel sorry for those who are willing to fork out over 110/$ 200 for some well worn vinyl of this album. I know very well that my taste in music is not shared by everyone. ...........Thankfully !!

The music is lightweigth with some very nasty references to HERP ALBERT and the muzak and elevator- music scene. The West End and Broadway musical scene also springs to mind. The musical HAIR is very much a references. The music has no edge and not much to do with classical music too. Thankfully it is not labelled as Symphonic Prog in PA. I agree with the Proto Prog label. Some references to the Mexican music scene is also evident here. Some classical orchestration makes the music dramatic. A good Hammond organ sometimes give references to THE DOORS. The Hammond organ is the only saving grace here. But most of the music is plastic fantastic fake and plainly vulgar. None of the melodies here are any good. Just irritating anonyme. The good Hammond organs saves the day. That is the only good thing to be said about this near-turkey.

2 stars.
