Prog Reviewer
3 stars OK, I'm reviewing this classic proto-prog album of the early seventies (jazz-rock oriented) after my critique regarding the music features of a Mexican Band-Iconoclasta- whose approach is similar, even though the creativity of these latter is inferior in comparison to Catapilla. Well in my opinion the unique defect concerning this debut album is its weak production (otherwise tipically characterizing almost the majority of the 70's proto-prog works, except on a few works by Colosseum for instance...);then consider the psychedelic elements inside (another typical feature of that period), but brilliantly supported by the uneven vocal parts: in fact sometimes Anna Meek overdoes things by screaming too much, while in other circumstances She's more pleasant and her melodic approach as well. Therefore if you regard the good variety of harmonic solutions in their technical execution,being sometimes prolix during the development of their long last suite, but always inspiring in the second section, the present work can complete your collection of proto prog music of the early seventies and in the best an historical document for all seasons!!
