4 stars This Band for me was a shot in the dark...You see, when I do not know a band I try to research a bit, but if they feature something like, say Mellotron I just have a seizure and by instinct get the album; well my friends I have to tell you, that's what exactly happened and I am absolutely pleased with my acquisition. You owed to your self to get at least a CD of this obscure, underrated and mostly unknown band...that feature the beautiful mellotron, and in a very special way. This is progressive-rock at its finest. 4-piece band, with an incredible interplay and waves of violin-mellotron, for some Lawson voice may be irritating but, the whole interplay of the songs is enough to forgive that..and, actually after a while you start melting his vocals to the whole texture of the album. One thing, that actually amused me was the fact that this is a very original band. I like this one better than their first, mainly just because they tend to use Mellotron a bit more....but both albums are superb!!! Now, there is another CD "Shades of Green" that is a very good compilation of their best titles thru the 4 albums (1973-75)...If you just want to get one CD, this is probably the one...Good Hunting prognuts!!!
