5 stars This is one of my most favorite albums from the era of early British, progressive rock. In this album Cressida kept all the good things from their debut. Namely the beautiful voice of Cullen and the warm organ sound of Jennings. On this album however they explored their musical ability. This is best shown in the two long tracks.

The album opens with a track that also could have been on the debut. The organ is simply brilliant. Next is the first long track, Munich. It starts slowly and dramatic. In the middle are long guitar and organ solos backed with a delightful strong bass sound. Next is a piano driven track. Reprieved is a jazzy piece (drums, bass, piano, wordless voice). In Lisa we hear that great organ again, added with flute. The album ends with the excellent Let Them Come When They Will. It has really good instrumental passages with both organ and guitar solos and a very melodramatic second part. An absolute brilliant masterpiece.

Agemo | 5/5 |
