4 stars Maybe 4 stars is a bit overrated since I don't enjoy all the songs, but Cressida is too unknown band of 'the golden age' that deserves to be checked out and would likely be enjoyed by many more proglovers. It's some sort of symphonic rock but quite far from Yes or Genesis. Even if it's 1971 already, Cressida has more in common with early British prog- rock (Moody Blues, Procol Harum, Rare Bird...). Organ and strings are important part of instrumentation. An earlier reviewer compared Angus Cullen's voice to Paul McCartney. Why not, but I think it has VERY much in common with Justin Hayward from Moody Blues. This album sounds deliciously mellow, old and rare. A fine obscure discovery. Songs vary from simple instrumentals to longer progressive compositions. Pretty interesting cover picture with dozens of white model heads on a shore, somehow suits the spirit!
