3 stars It's good to be the first one to review an album! I don't really have it, but I have the complete collection, so it stands for this one and the next one, plus some singles...

Coming to review, it has only little signs of what is to come (666) and shows little of what is expected of a prog band (it's been exact to include it "folk prog", though 666 has nothing to with "folk" in the sense we understand), but still has its moments. I don't think Demis's guitar is as powerful as Silver's (no wonder, Sideras asked Vangelis to bring him in for 666), I'm not sure I can even hear it! But for long artists such as UK, Wakeman and Tangerine Dream proved to me that it was possible to make "rock" music without the guitar, and this might be one of them... (again, there might be guitar and I might have missed it!) It has a flavor of psychedelia (day of the fool, valley of sadness), some folk based songs (the shepherd...), even some straightforward rock songs (you always stand...), but has "foolish" poppy songs, too... Rain and tears is their first hit, as much as I know, but nothing more than a romantic sixties number. Well, at least half of the album features good songs, so you wouldn't be wasting your money... Besides, you will have the first album by an essential band in the scene... Worth buying (try to get it mid price, or in a bootleg as I did, so you wouldn't be sorry for your money!!!)
