4 stars Where to begin?.....i discovered this musical adventure thanks to Prog Archives, otherwise I am sure I would have missed it. I suppose you might call this a nice folk album with crazy and sometimes disturbing themes. My favorite songs would have to be "Song to Comus" and "Drip Drip". The rest is good but these two tracks really resonated with me. If you have not heard this release, it is impossible for me to attempt to describe it. Maybe a bit of Queen's "Ferry Fellers Master Stroke",and "Orge Battle " mixed with some early Strawbs from GRAVE NEW WORLD times, and then throw in some sick lyrics and weird singing, druid chanting, and interesting beats. Like I said....hard to describe. But, overall, I would rate this a solid 4 star effort. A pity the band didn't last long enough to complete a larger body of work. Would have been interesting.
