Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is more an "Heavy rock" album rather than a "Proto-progressive" one, with a mellower touch of such "Proto hard-prog, HAWKWIND-like". Iit combines some long suites to some shorter songs in the vein of CRESSIDA or RAW MATERIAL, but with a constant presence of a "Mellotron keyboard". After all it's anyway a good heavy rock issue, with a lot of satanic lyrics and also some totally different moments at the harpsichord (listen to the strange hard version of Richard Harris' "McArthur Park.", maintaining anyway such a mellower approach, this time in the vein of JETHRO TULLl); nevertheless there's always an aggressive electric guitar, which compensates this "easier and simplistic" atmosphere... then - as for these explanations - I think that this album is not essential, being however remarkable in some circumstances only!
