3 stars Quill is an american trio very much in vein of ELP, Triumvirat or Trace, same aproach to music same manner of composing. The only thing maybe diffrent from those 3 bands from above is that they release a single album in late 1977 entitled Sursum corda and re release on CD in 1993 by legendary Greg Walker from famous Syn-Phonic label. The music as I said is very up tempo in places, combned very well with slower moments, but even those particular arrangements are hammond driven , without guitar, only drums , voice and bass. The album has 2 long tracks , 2 movements, each one divided in miny sections. Specially the part 2, the second movement is for me more close to my taste, the first one, is not a bad at all, but is too repetative in arrangements and has to many ELP similarities, to many. Over all a good album, but nothing fantastic if you ask me, they release this album a little to late in prog world, when disco and punk were all over, they didn't manage to survive to many years and disbanded in 1979. The CD has great band pictures, lyrics and history of the band. So a pleasent ride in prog rock realm, at least for me, but I don't think that this album will exciteing many listneres. 3 star is the best I can give.
