2 stars Made in the same vein as it's self-titled predecessor, Gravy Train's second album ('A Ballad Of) A Peaceful Man' features the same guitar-and-flute heavy mix and screeching vocals as before, just this time the group's leader Norman Barrett has split the album into two sections, the first of which features ballad's and songs of a slower tempo, whilst the second is made up of the group's heavier and rockier numbers. Again, there is nothing wrong with the group's actual playing, it's just the material is pretty un-inspiring. The syrupy album opener 'Alone In Georgia' is possibly the worst thing this band has recorded, but luckily it's a one-off abberation. The rest of ('A Ballad Of) A Peaceful Man' is made up of competent, guitar-heavy prog that could well appeal to fans of Jethro Tull, Black Widow and Uriah Heep, but probably won't win any prizes for originality.
