2 stars well well..... Has anyone ever heard of this band?. They sound so english with the mood and the concept of kings and duels but this band is american and a pretty late comer to the prog sceen (1977). I must admit i was quite puzzlled when i found this CD for a low price at a used CD (and records!) shop. I looked at the cover, and then at the back for the track list where the word movement stuck out and then i said to myself:"This is a prog album". "But how does it sound?", i asked myself..... Well...it's not that good , and that is what counts here as you all know. Why is it not that good?. Well the musicians are ok and they do play in the genre (A keyboard trio a la ELP,le orme or any KB trio you can think about) but it is just an inspiring. The singing is the weakest point in my opinion, the guy just cant sing!!. Another problem is that the material is just not written well and therfore makes the album (In my opinion) boring. I will give this 2 stars for musicianship and a nice concept (Although the words are a bit silly but how sirious can you be with such a concept). Avoid unless you find it for a nice price (like i did).
