3 stars This Norwegian band was founded in 1970 and Underground and Beyond is their debut album after 27 years of musicianship!Compositions included are solely songs from their 1970-72 repertoire.

Album sounds as great evidence of early 70-s era, end for those who isn't familiar with band's story this music is almost original sound from that time. Even sound mixing and producing is in the fashion of that time.

Stylistically music on this album is blues-rock based hard rock with strong prog-folk influences (flutes are pure Jethro Tull). Arrangements are quite progressive though, and in whole compositions sound (as many reviewers noticed yet) as crossover between Jethro Tull and dark and quite heavy hard rock. Songs are melodic and quite catchy, musicianship is competent,vocals are good enough. Really interesting album for fans of vintage prog rock, for all others possibly far not so interesting though: when in nostalgic moments it always better to listen to original great releases from early 70-s.

Positive moment is band are not a copy cat actually - they play their own music they wrote in early 70-s and got the possibility to release this debut only now!
