4 stars A great collection of retro rock with prog qualities in the vein of Procul Harum, Robin Trower, Uriah Heep, Nektar, Grand Funk, Blind Faith, Traffic, Utopia, and even Camel and Pink Floyd. Impeccable sound reproduction, stellar drumming and guitar leads and compositional and lots of 'borrowed' riffs/melody lines from classic rock and prog rock songs. This album is exciting and never dull, if a bit familiar. For example: imagine Traffic and post-Sinfield/Lake/Giles KCrimson jamming to Yes' "The Fish" "schindleria praematurus" vocal riff: you get "The Empty Hourglass" (9/10). Or how 'bout Fripp/Eno and Jethro Tull playing with Pink Floyd on their 1974 Dark Side of the Moon tour: you get "The Great Work" (8/10). Or Blind Faith playing on stage with Supertramp and Nektar on the "Journey to the Centre of the Eye" album tour: you get "Requiem (for a Dying Creed)" (9/10). Anyway, you get my drift. The bottom line is that this is excellent music for listening--especially for bringing you back to about 1972 or 3--yet all original music with its own charm and clever hooks. Well composed, well performed, excellent production--well done, Hypnos 69! 4.5 stars. Not sure if this is a true masterpiece--though it is reminiscent of many masters of the 1970s. 4.5 stars for now! We'll see in five years how memorable much less essential this one is.
