4 stars DON'T let the silly CD cover fool you. This is a GREAT new instrumental progressive rock band from Massachusetts. No fooling around here. The sound is similar in style to ELP, Yes and Rush though with a bit more of a spacy science fiction feel. The reason for that feel is because of the featured keyboard work (including Mellotron, Hammond, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet) from Madeleine Noland and Derek Roebuck. Madeleine also plays analog wind- controlled synthesizers which really give the album a spacy feel. This music however, is not ambient. Far from it. The other two bandmates, writer Bill Noland (bass) and Mark Cella (drums), really love to bring in some tasty rhythms that energizes the music and impress. The bass lines are not simple and are always keeping things groovin'. The drumming is also superb and never boring. Impressive debut from EO. I hope to hear more from them. If you are a fan of 70's prog from Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes and ELP or music featuring a classic analog keyboard sound then this CD is very recommended! 4 1/2 stars!

Note - The drummer, Mark Cella, owns M&M Records, the label that released this album.
