Prog Reviewer
4 stars Family's second album boasts the same lineup as Music From a Doll's House, and came out a mere 8 months after that debut. Perhaps the rush to feed a market hungry for psych-prog magic led them to rush this one a little, because it doesn't quite hit the heights of the original. It feels a bit more homogenised this time around - whereas Music From a Doll's House reeled from mood to mood in a dizzying whirl, this time around the band seem to be gunning for a bit of Serious Prog Credibility and their songs tend toward their more serious moods as a result. Still, Roger Chapman's voice retains a certain charm and the songs aren't incompetent - I just miss the whimsy which the previous album possessed and the cheeky cover to this one seems to promise.
Warthur | 4/5 |
