4 stars The often overlooked Austrian progrock band EELA CRAIG epitomizes the whole Austrian progressive movement. The music on the great compilation-CD "Symphonic rock" (including the songs from the albums "One Niter" and "Hats of Glass") is hard to compare, maybe some hints from RICK WAKEMAN solo, ELOY, PINK FLOYD and CAMEL can be traced. The melodic and harmonic music from EELA CRAIG is build upon beautiful interplay between four members with their keyboards (ranging from soaring strings and bombastic choir- Mellotron to the typical sound of the Fender Rhodes electric piano, sensational Moog flights, swinging clavinet and powerful Hammond organ runs) and sensitive and howling electric guitar play. The moving compositions sound warm and are coloured with lots of instruments, from the aforementioned keyboards to flute, acoustic guitar and assorted percussion. Wonderful symphonic rock that deserves more attention, especially 'Tron- maniacs' will be delighted about the omnipresence of this unique keyboard.
