5 stars As my good colleague Greger mentions, this is one of the better proggroups in recent years....and their Beatles,Crimson & otherwise seventies inspiration is apparent. I have to say that is by far...SO MUCH seventies without being from the seventies than you´ll ever hear!! They hail from US but the records are released from the Swedish record company:Record heaven. By the looks of these guys they ARE from the seventies..and the music is a wonderfull mix of Beatles vocals style and Crimson type music..with a little sting of their own..put in some fuzz guitar and other lovely gizmo´s..there you have it!!!Listening to this wonderfull record ...i feel like im back in the seventies (now for you..the younger readers this doesnt apply!) Its all here... the heavy guitars..the mellotron...the harsh vocals..the beautiful vocals the chords a la seventies..the arrangements....whoooaaaaa!!! As this is the 10 track like to mention the wonderfull cover version of Pretty things´s : "Baron Saturday" from their (Pretty things)fantastic album... "S.F. Sorrow"..which by the way is a must have!!! Now back to BIG ELF.....if you (like me)love seventies prog/psych this is an absolute MUST OWN!!! There´s no waiting....go get it...NOW!!!!!
