3 stars ODIN a British prog rock band....put out this record on the famous Vertigo label in 1972. They sound like a nice blend of Epitaph and Birth control (first period)...and the production are as could be expected from way back then. I kinda like the music...which is heavy on the hammond and keys in general,bass player Ray brown does a nice job, as do guitarist Rob Terstall...the drummer misses a few beats underway...but hey ..those were the days of funny tobacco....!! Second track is quite a nice tribute (tonal and arrangement wise) to Frank Zappa....mind you, not as brilliant as the old master himself would have done it... but still a nice little ditty.Fourth track "Be the man you are" sounds like it could have been out of a Steamhammer album....when they were in the acoustic mode!! Nice track!! Funnily enough the acoustic guitars recorded back then, sounded more like...ahem.... the musicians were right beside you...there in your living room.This might be because of the many options,gadgets,effects...and so on, the musicians nowadays have the possibility to use. Anyway...this is a nice litte obscure thing from the past...should you meet it on your quest for more progmusic...give it a try. So 3 stars....actually i think it deserves 3 and a half......and please, do not ignore the old albums and groups...there are plenty of great music and fun to be had there!!! Have a nice prog summer!!
