4 stars This one shot USA band is rooted in 1973, their debut album is from 1976. Listening to "For you the old women" bands like Yes (bass work, organ and vocal harmonies) and Gentle Giant (brass instruments and complex parts) came to my mind. Their sound is powerful and propulsive with a remarkable role for singer/trumpet player John Visocky III. The titletrack is the opener and has mellow parts with twanging guitar and flute.Then "Conversation with personality Giver" featuring sparkling synthesizer runs, dynamic drums and soli on guitar, piano and organ. The following track "Light of the candle" delivers a tasteful and varied keyboard sound, from Fender Rhodes electric piano and Moog synthesizer to Hammond - and Farfisa organ. "Number six" (the fourth song...) is a musical maverick with a Frank Zappa-like structure featuring trumpets and a complex final part. The last composition "For four" is 15 minutes long typical Seventies progrock: alternating and varied with many instrumental parts, evoking Yes, Genesis and Kansas but in general Mirthrandir succeeds to sound original with as highlight a break with propulsive drums and organ. EXCELLENT!
