5 stars First of all.....yes, i know i reviewed this (and the other album)earlier....but another reviewer recently raved about this group. And i have to say...that dismissing these guys as a YES clone...is like comparing oranges to lemons..... first of all this group are foremost an acoustic (basicly)group...(they started in 1970 as a trio called Maggot) and shure there are hints of YES... and several other bands from that era...SO WHAT ?? Since the beginning of Rock´n roll there were always hints'and allegations of camparisons/thieving of songs...whatever. Thruth be told ..there are only so many chords......and in my book ... Druid really does make a worthwhile listening (both albums) The structure of Druid as a band are quite different from that of ...say YES. Druid had an idea build on acousticfolk guitars/vocals......a simple but convincing thought. Building their songs/themes up in the studio. Singer/songwriter style. While ....YES...had the whole "machine"working for them studio/gear/arranger.. producer,recordcompany backing them up,studiotime you name it!! enuff said....every man for himself (now were talking everyday ordinairy listener)... we are all entitled to an opinion....but when you hear a false note....you have to reply!! Druid are (in my opinion) a wonderfull soft prog outing...with beautiful song and vocals.. ditto.......and to all of you ...wondering readers.....YES.. the next one is as good as this one!! If you are looking for great vocal arrangements,beautiful songs.......in the style of Magna carta,Fruup & a litte Yes. LOOK NO FURTHER !!! DRUID has the remedy!!! Oh..by the way ..story is, that Druid ,won their 2 album record contract in a contest!!
