Prog Reviewer
2 stars The second Laghonia album shows some progress from the first - rather than playing somewhat generic-sounding psychedelic rock with some very minor influences from local musical styles, as they did on their debut, Laghonia strongly emphasise the Beatles influence in their work. And, admitted, at times they do produce songs that approach a decent tribute to the Fab Four, as on the spacey Lonely People or parts of Everybody on Monday.

But personally, I can't get into it - the songs are too long, too repetitive, too drawn-out, with too few ideas stretched over too much time. It doesn't help that the production values aren't too great - at least, on the version I own - an unfortunate consequence of cheap recording practices at the time combined with the fact that the CD was, as I understand it, mastered from one of the last two remaining vinyl copies of the album rather than the now-lost master tapes. Ah well.

Warthur | 2/5 |
