3 stars If it wasn't for the Dutch accents on the vocals on this album, I would have thought that this was a group out of the Canterbury scene. The songs somewhat airy compositions, with slightly thin vocals singing what sounds a bit like rock madrigals, this could be early Caravan or similar Canterbury artists.

The progness of this album is limited, but then, this was released in 1970, when only a few trailblazers were releasing albums of full blown prog. But still, there are some worthwhile moments on this album. Anonymous, or Anonymus as it's spelled on my CD, is a pretty cool jam, superior to it's sequel on the III album.

Not a bad start, but showing little of what would later come from this band.
