3 stars This is the only album from this German band. It has been labeled as symphonic prog. Maybe it is, but Madison Dyke does not deliver any ELP or Genesis worship. The music here is a mix of Krautrock and space rock, with some symphonic prog thrown in for good measure. The band has obviously listened to both Focus and Jethro Tull too. The flute here is down that road too. Neither is Eloy an unknown entity among Madison Dyke's influences. The Genesis influences kicks in on the second song Cooking time of an egg. Maybe lyrically too if the title of the track reflects the text. Some Camel influences can be heard too.

The songs are pretty good. Cooking time of an egg is a small gemstone of a song. Short and sweet. The rest is OK, without being diamonds. It is actually a pity that Madison Dyke only released one album. I wonder what they may had come up with if they had continued. If this album is to judge the band by, they were not in the same class as Triumvirat or Eloy. But they were OK. But OK is perhaps not enough in today's music world.
