3 stars I bought this album in a specials bin from WHSmith in 1976. I must admit that I didn't much like it when I first played it - apart from the track, Goodbye, Farewell, Adieu. I think that song could have got to Number One in the hit parade if it had been released as a single and re- jigged a little.

Listening to the album 35 years later I find myself enjoying it much more. However, one of my original observations still applies: I don't know the correct musical terms for what I am about to say, but to my amateurish ear the production seems a little loose - as if it is being performed by musicians who haven't played much together and not sorted out their timing precisely. Don't get me wrong...this is no run of the mill band, they are an accomplished bunch of musoes, although I am not enamoured with their vocals.

I think Gnidrolog was a band of their time - very much in vogue for the years they performed. Their music is not for the masses - no easily whistled tunes here! But if you consider yourself a cut above the masses musically, then you should consider giving them a go.
