3 stars Since no one has written a review on this I will!

If you are fond of the more psychodelic-hard part of progressive rock this album is for you. It has an interesting sound. Somehow innovative, melody-like, but at the same time we've already listened to all of this compositional resources, heavy leslie organs, walking, rythmic bass lines and hard overdriven guitars, doing blue-ish licks here and there. OVERALL this does not sound like something from 1975, it sounds earlier actually, maybe 69 or 70. BUT you can actually notice some dynamics and changes that are very VERY proggy (75 like), that is what makes the album interesting.

It's a worth listen to me, it's EASY to listen too, the vocal melodies are catchy and simple, everything works nicely together, but if i have to pick, the organ and the vocals are the highlights of the record. Also, every track is solid, this is an album with 0 skips, but yes, it can be a little predictable sometimes.

Of course, since this is an obscure album from an underground old band, the production is, well... Rather shitty (probably the weakest point of the record). Without further ado, give it a try if you like psychodelic rock and blues, this is a perfect mix of that, with that splash of progressive rock (you can even find folk! so be aware).

BEST TRACK: IT HAPPENED TO ME, 4,5/5. (oh god the melodiess!!!)
