2 stars Oh, I see: JANE is categorized under Heavy Prog. So it's no wonder I didn't like it that much. I just listened to the first minute of the album in the library, after picking it up from a Prog section (my habit these days, to choose twenty-odd CD's at a time to bring home). It sounded good, with the hazy, floating organ-led sound strongly reminding of Saucerful-era PINK FLOYD. At the closer listen it was evident that the opening track, 'Daytime', is the album's highlight.

The second best is the closer 'Hangman'. More heavy, featuring some strong electric guitar playing but not yet too heavy for my taste. These two long tracks are 18 minutes of quite good German Prog sung in English. The rest of the album is rather poor, badly produced and marred especially by a bad vocalist. He's worse than the one of RARE BIRD (whose raspy roughness can work pretty well, in fact). The music is nothing very special either; poor man's early DEEP PURPLE is the best description I can think of. Some have mentioned also URIAH HEEP, which I find whole lot more interesting. I can think of several better psychedelic/heavy acts from early 70's than JANE. The cover art is quite suitable to the music: raises curiosity but turns out to be rather dull. With two better tracks, I give it 2,5 stars.
