My hopes were not very high, but still I got disappointed. This is the kind of band that makes you realize that little league prog bands like Eloy or Camel were really, really good. If I ever started my prog collection with this band, this would be different.

My main complaint is the lack of complexity in their songs. They offer more psychedelic factor than progressive. For example, their pattern seems to repeat the same lines (with LSD vocal effects) with few instrumental demonstration (''Time machine....Time machine....Silver Peacock...Silver Peacock..'' enough already!!).

The vocals are a bit overboard, giving more (cheese) than the song needs. Phew, I'm sorry but besides the good interludes between the songs, I'm pressing skip more than I want to.

If not satisfied, try Eloy.
