4 stars ' Ballad...' was the most amenable album from GT for their small fan base. It kind of entered into a more structured melodic style with shorter songs. Most of them well delivered and the flute from JD Hughes on this album probably his best out of all their albums. It's when you play this quality type album from 33 odd years previiously you realize what a creative force GT were. The title track is stirring with flute interwoven with subtle vocals. ' Alone in georgia' the opening number equally memorable.' Jule's Delight' and ' Mesenger' perhaps the other best tracks. I think this album struck a chord with the educated listener of those times and will always stand testimony to that wonderful era where prog rock truly was in the NOW. Don't pass this album by,
Chris S | 4/5 |
