Prog Reviewer
3 stars Comus - Diana (extended pre-release single)

This is an EP with just three tracks, released before the First Utterance album. My First Utterance vinyl version has a second 45 rpm lp containing the original Diana material, which runs about 15 minutes.

The track Diana is also the first track of the First utterance album. This psychedelic witch-like track with strange lyrics and a folky melody is very nice but not of interest since it is also available on the original album. In the Lost Queen's Eyes and Winter is a Coloured Bird are the material you'll seek out if you buy this EP. Both are excellent folk tracks with some psychedelic influences and a lot of beautiful folkish acoustic guitar parts with some nice violin. True fans of Comus might want to hear this and be surprised of the elegant Winter is a Coloured Bird that runs for eight minutes. This is stylish prog folk but nothing more.

Conclusion. A short document of some great prog folk. Not important if you don't like Comus and just a good addition if you do like Comus. The music presented is at least good, so I'll give it three stars. It's nice to have a double lp containing both First Utterance and this release. It is strange to give such a short record a rating higher then three stars. Three stars.
