4 stars One of those albums that won't make it to your top 25 albums of all time but every time you listen to it, it brings a smile to your face. Of the six songs on the album three of them are symphonic rock and three are melodic rock with hints of progressive rock in the same vein as Manfred Mann is considered progressive rock. Still, when it's good, it's great! There are some brilliant moves on some of the longer songs like on La Gash Lagoon (8:18) and Sunburst (8:33) and it reminds me of early Yes or Greenslade. It's very melodic progressive rock with great vocals and the keyboard player has a key position on the album and delivers lots of moog synths, organ, mellotron etc. Still, if you like progressive rock with an emphasis to the melodic side and fancy the early side of the 70s, this is a must buy. Every symphonic rock album that brings a smile on my face is worth having!
