5 stars A very interesting, wonderful offering on this first (and hopefully many more!) release of Mysteries Of The Revolution.

Blending a touch of "this and that" in the form of kind of a Canterbury, prog, slightly and very tasty free form (only slightly,) and their own unique vision, this becomes instantly loveable. In fact, although all of the music is top notch, from track 7 - 11, this is nearing the 5 star realm.

I haven't (for some reason) heard of any of these marvelous players before. They produce what is needed for the music, with absolutely no showing off their skills just to appear flashy and cool. In fact, if there's a complaint, I wish they did a bit more heroics from time to time. Still, for a 1st recording, the restraint (and it's obvious they're more than capable of bombastic soloing) is very mature and quite a relief. The flute playing, combined with the creative (and used ever so effectively) vocal treatments bring in the flavor of inventiveness that this familiar style needs to keep it fresh and exciting.

I wish (if anyone can help, please do!) I knew more about these performers/creators, as surely there is a back catalog of some sort to show us how they got this original offering so mature and tasty.

Get this, it will bring many listening's of fresh, reflective, and a nice bit of excitement to your ears taste-buds. Long live Mysteries Of The Revolution!
