4 stars It took me a long time to warm up to this one. The problem was I started with their second album "From Books And Dreams" which I would describe as being more of a Krautrock / Psychedelic album that really intrigued me. "The Dawn A New Is Coming" is their debut and Dieter Dierks is the engineer, i'm not sure if Taff Freeman (NEKTAR) was a guest on here (both bands released their debuts the same year) or actually a member but he adds some synths and mellotron.

"Changes" features guitar, drums and percussion right off the hop. Vocals join in quickly.The lyrics don't impress me at times but it's a pretty good song. Not a lot going on in the intro for "The Dawn A new Is Coming" until the vocals arrive before 1 1/2 minutes. It kicks in with drums a minute later. I like the guitar before 3 1/2 minutes. The tempo picks up 4 minutes in. This is better. Themes are repeated. Parts of this song are outstanding.

"Evil Faith And Charity" is a fairly heavy but straight forward track. I like the vocal melodies early and the sax. The guitar takes the lead after 2 1/2 minutes. Best part of the song. I like the way it builds in the beginning of "Heaven Knows". It settles back after 2 minutes. Check out the mellotron in this one too. The tempo and mood continues to change on this one. Nice flood of mellotron after 9 minutes. "When I'm Home" is my favourite. It opens with a 60's flavour. Mellotron before 3 minutes as spoken words join in. Some excellent guitar after 4 1/2 minutes.Then it kicks back in.

This is worth 4 stars but please check out their second album as well .
