2 stars The Canterbury label fooled me a bit here and I went ahead and bought this album.

I did not know there was a place called Canterbury in the south-states of USA. Because that's where the sound comes from. This is more Georgia than Kent. The vocals is most definate in the blues land. The brass and the keyboards somewhere in the soul scene and the guitars somewhere around the hard rock scene. The songs are a cross of hard rock, heavy-prog, blues, the 1960s rock'n'roll and soul. But from the shadows of the Canterbury Cathedral, it ain't.

After surviving the initial shock (fingers crossed), I find the songs reasonable good. The opening track A Sea Of Holy Pleasure and the two closing tracks Promised Land and Realisation And Death are good. The rest of the songs are OK. All songs are varied and have structures that fits into the progressive rock category. They would also interest fans of the first two WHITESNAKE albums. My ProgArchive profile would tell you that I am a symphonic prog fan. Heavy prog is not my field of pleasure. So I am only giving this album a low score. But as always; check out this album on your own.
