4 stars I was very surprised over Gryphon's ability to mix complex, challenging and very progressive music with light folk rock when I first heard them a few years ago. I got introduced to them with their "Raindance" album from 1975, which was a good album, though very uneven. I decided to check this band out more and heard this one a couple of weeks after. This one was MUCH more complex and progressive, and I liked it from the very first listen!

This album have 4 songs, all clocks in at 8-10 minutes, but they're never boring. "Opening Move" and "Checkmate" are my favorites on the album, both very enjoyable tracks with some really great parts spread around. The other two tracks on this album is nearly as good, but not quite up to pair with the two other ones. Still very good!

It's highly interesting to hear such original and creative folk-prog like this. Slightly uneven, but highly recommended if you like folk-prog (or prog generally). Give this one a listen! My Rating: 4.5/5 stars!
