4 stars A situation at that time would not have been necessarily a good environment for the activity and this album of Yezda Urfa. Recognizing of Music whom they were doing again might risen because the history of album and their activities comes to be known gradually. Their neither material at that time nor sound source might have circulated. However, their existence might have given the charm to the fan and the listener including the part of the mystery.

It is said that Yezda Urfa was formed in Indiana state in 1973. The history of an original activity goes back to the activity of the band by the high school student. And, it is said that neither an activity before this album is announced nor a commercial material exist.

The band replaces the member and becomes a final organization in February, 1975. It is said that it recorded for the first time for the demonstration in May, 1975. The album independently produced is issued by 300 numbers. The original board was a start of this album.

The band sent this original board to the broadcasting station and the recording label of the radio and waited for the chance of the debut. However, this sound source was never almost accepted. At this point, existence and the sound source of the band become more valuable existence. They exchange Dharma Records with the contract and record formally in 1976. However, it is said that the contract fails and the sound source was not announced for about 13 years.

As for this album, the recording was done by five person organization. All members except the drum player can do the chorus. The history of them at this time is said as a history and a transition of the band at the period after the composition in which acoustic is made a center. Introduction of various musical instruments. Introduction of flute, mandolin, and banjo. The construction of the melody that gives symphonic and an aggressive impression overall is described as a part where "Yes" and "Gentle Giant" are often reminiscent.

"Boris And His 3 Verses.Including Flow Guides Aren't My Bag" starts by a pastoral song. The sound of the guitar and the keyboard with which the sense of relief overflows reaches the peak gradually. Sound of keyboard that produces part of complete symphonic. The part of symphonic put on three rhythms shifts to an aggressive part while continued. Aggressive melody to get on rhythm of three rhythms. Unison of Riff and keyboard of guitar. Introduction of dash feeling and irregular rhythm. Development that constructs complete, symphonic heavy rock is overwhelming. The tune completely receives the top while introducing the rhythm of the shuffle. Shift of melody with expression of feelings. Or, a peculiar chorus. It is an anyway strong tune.

"Texas Armadillo" is a tune with which the flavor of country tunes overflows. The tune to make good use of the banjo and the mandolin increases the dash feeling and advances. A dash feeling that the band produces in union and a complete unison are overwhelming. The performance of the band that splendidly combines the irregular rhythm is still strong.

As for "3,Almost 4,6 Yea", the overall, aggressive melody is constructed. Many of aggressive melody done by making good use of 7 rhythms, 3, and four rhythms. The storm of the melody that develops one after another while continuing the dash feeling is overwhelming. Flow of acoustic that pushes flute out to previous. The style beauty with which expression of feelings overflows will make the impression of the tune diversified before long. Part where expression of feelings of baroque melody is introduced. The tune will return to the theme before long as the part of symphonic heavy gradually twining. The composition of the tune is overwhelming.

The melody to get on three rhythms produces the sense of relief and the anacatesthesia to "Tuta In The Moya&Tyreczimmage". The unison of the melody makes complete symphonic with the song and the chorus. Construction of moving melody. Part where complex melody and rhythm are completely constructed. Acoustic, good flavor in close relation to dash feeling. Element of Heavy Rock in close relation to there. Part of Solo of flute. A good tension and the sense of relief continue.

As for "Three Tons Of Fresh Thyroid Glands", the melody of the band where expression of feelings exists is expressed well. Construction of rhythm and melody developed one after another. The guitar and the flute also contribute to the tune. The flute and the keyboard in close relation to the rhythm with the dash feeling are complete. Pastoral song and chorus who has them recollect Yes. The tune constructs complete symphonic.

All complete parts of this band and the music characters are blocked in "The Basis Of Dubenglazy While Dirk Does The Dance". A complete dash feeling and a complex rhythm and the melody are splendidly developed. Uniting acoustic and symphonic might be splendid. The impression to which a more aggressive melody and the rhythm are developed from the music character to recollect Yes and Gentle Giant is given. Uniting of rhythm with dash feeling with chorus. A sense of existence of the band is overwhelming.

The sound source and the activity of Yezda Urfa are valuable existence also between fans including the compilation album. However, the music that they were doing might always be high-quality. The concealed good band is here.
