5 stars "Banquet" is Lucifer's Friends progressive masterpiece. It has none of the heavy guitar and organ riffs of their debut album. Instead this album i filled with strings, electric piano and moog-syntheziser. It also has a much more laid back sound compared to the dark and haunting sound of the two first albums. John Lawton's vocals are as usual fantastic and the whole band are really impressive instrumentalists. If you are into classic 70's heavy metal you should start with the self-titled debut or the more proggressive but still heavy (and great) "Where the Groupies Killed the Blues" from '72. I myself really like all those incarnations of Lucifer's Friend and consider them one of my all time favorite bands. But if you only want one Lucifer's Friend album this is the one to own I think. A Masterpiece!
