4 stars Rich in their renaissance'ish classical vein, GRYPHON's "Red Queen To Gryphon Three" is a superb instrumental album offering some lovely tones and atmospheres. For me one of the most striking aspects of this album is the unusual use of instrumentation including basoons, krumhorns and recorders mixed with guitars, keyboards and perucssion. Comprised of 4 long tracks each being given the space to explore some excellent progressive rock grooves. This album has many delicate musical moments while still offering some nice complex elements mixed throughout as well. For the progressive rock historians out there it was the success of this album which gave GRYPHON the opportunity to warm up YES on their USA tour back in '74. This is highly original and highly intellectual music which I would warmly recommend.
