4 stars Anyone's Daugher is a german symphonic prog band formed in late '70's and releasing first album in 1979 named Adonis. Influences are clear from the beggining from , Novalis, Eloy, some Genesis here and there. Also the sound of the band must be considered that in this period was born neo prog, very musch this kind of bands will influence the next generatiuon of neo prog bands from the '80's, like pentragon, Arena, and so on. Very much a teutonic sound here and manner of aproach of their music, sometimes quite similar with Tibet for ex, who just releasing the first album selftitled and aswell their swansong in 1979. Anyway this first album of this quite underrated band from german scene has a very powerfull release here, symphonic arrangements , very good, musicianship top notch, a good album all the way. Even the voice has a typical german accent like the one from Eloy, is not a weak point here, all is well made and with profesional sound. Anyone's Daugher were in those years a shining star in progressive rock genre, everybody known that 1979 was the peak of disco and punk.Still they manage to gain some succes, not bif, but quite important for them to push to make another albums. The relase opens with the title track , 22 min of great arrangements, inventive duo between guitar of Uwe Karpa with the keyboards of Matthiss Ulmer, nice track and well played. An instrumental piece aswell Blue house, elegant and smooth in same time. So , a pleasent release for me, quite enjoyble , and will desearve for sure 4 stars, but I prefere their next one , even has a more mainstream sound.
