1 stars One day in '76, I went to my local record store I always frequented and some guy recommended this LP for it's "Yes-like" qualities. So I took it back to the party house I was living at the time and played it with my girlfiend, roomate and fellow prog-buddies. And all we could do was just laugh our asses off on just how unoriginal and immitative they were. It's one thing to be influenced by someone else, it's another thing to immitate them. Even the Moodies didn't immitate the Beatles like these guys did to Yes and everybody else. I eventually frisbeed this album later.

The funny thing is, a few months later I got tickets to a Johhny Winter show (not prog, but love this guy anyway, great slide!) and they opened up for him of all people. Not even live were they impressive. It was general admission (when this was cool, before the Who fiasco in Ohio), so I just stayed up in the bleachers and got stoned during this. New proggers beware of this group. Enough said, 1 star 'cause technically their musicianship is not half- bad. And that is all!
