4 stars The history of Egg starts exactly in 1967. The band formed mutually by student's companion was a band that was called "Uriel". The sound source of this Uriel is put on the market as CD. Therefore, it came to be able to buy material concerning this Egg in music worldwide in the market. If the age is considered, the band that derives in the music of Canterbury is not a translation that starts music with originality from the beginning. It is guessed to be a worldwide overflow of the element of Rock and psychedelic and a little start also of the situation of Canterbury from those influences. Active Steve Hillage to the back with Khan and Gong was on the register in this Uriel, too. And, their music characters came to be touched off gradually by Cream and The Nice. However, Hillage never debuted with them. The name of the band is renamed to "Egg" and debuts in 1970. A part of aggressiveness and a classical part of their elements might be indeed large. I think that they are the results of classical of Stewart and an active part's uniting with the dash feeling of the rhythm. Tunes of the album are all the work of the cooperation of the member excluding two. The keyboard of Stewart contributes to Canterbury with some perfection already. The variegation of the sound of Stewart might prove the fact with the riot of color and the shine like a sensual phrase etc. of the tune and "I Will Be Absorbed" with the dash feeling like "While Growing My Hair". However, a classical element is included as for some part. Egg might have been a starting point if talking about the history of the music of Canterbury Scene and Stewart of course.
