1967/ 1976
4 stars "Pathfinder" is the third album from Beggars Opera and is not a symphonic album but a great Prog album, not ecletic or crossover, only a Prog album. The only Symphonic moments are the cover of Jim Webb "MacArthur Park" with harpsichord and a taste of mellotron and the incredibly "Stretcher", an instrumental guitar driven song. "From Shark To Haggies" present a first part that is a good dark light version of Black Sabbath and a second part that is a good cheerful mix of Rock and mediterranean Folk. "Madame Doubtfire" is a technical Rock song with tons of psychedelia as "hobo" is a Rock with tons of arrangements.

Without Virginia Scott (that has co-wrote two songs) this album is, at the end, a good album of Prog, as I wrote above. Not fundamental but excellent.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
