3 stars Druid have often been accused of being Yes-clones - understandable in many ways, and indeed they were an opening act at a number of Yes concerts, so Jon Anderson obviously didn't feel too threatened...

They won a competition by Melody Maker for the best unsigned band, the prize including new instruments and a recording contract, which they took full advantage of, creating this album.

The result - not a bad effort, though the keyboards and drumming feel a little basic and the guitarist Cedric Sharpley was no Steve Howe. Despite their limitations, they managed to produce a pleasant if ultimately unsatisfying album. Well worth a listen, though hardly an essential addition to your collection .
