5 stars I consider "ADONIS " one of the best albuns of late 70's. The music is very captivating and the songs make the emotions flowing easily.

The first track "Adonis" become separeted in 4 parts:

Part 1 - Come Away - A transcendental theme which start with a very liryc guitar fingering and leading the melody In a brief moment to an "fuga" !!! The climax of the music introduce a "dialogue" beautiful of guitar arpeggio & moog solo and in the background a pulsating bass/drums rhythmic secction simple but perfect for the sound.

Part 2 - The Disguise - A relatively small theme whose the mainly atraction is a moog/guitar couterpoint and a very explosive drums.

Part 3 - Adonis - A moment of serenity opening a beauty ballad, but this serenity soon after changing in a very tense moment with a repetitive rythmn with fantastic moog solo Which changing again in a very brief ballad . Part 4 - The Epitaph - Another ballad guided by the guitar melody, closes in great style the track.

The second track "Blue House" is a melancholic number, One of the most beautiful songs of all the times, if you are a rommantic or dreammer this a perfect song.

The third track "Sally" is the most different moment of 'ADONIS' maybe due the presence of sax solo

The fourth track "Anyone's daughter" is a great final theme for this excellent record. A mix of symphonic and ennergetic hard prog, with great moments of hammond organ , great guitar solos and incridible variations of bass and drums.

ADONIS presents one band in a perfect performance, the guitar is very creative, keyboards shows one certanly majesty, the drums and the bass conduct the songs with rich rhythnmic variations and the vocals are very beauty and in many moments is the responsible by captivating the audience.

For this reasons my rate is 5 stars !!!
