3 stars Many years ago I ordered Babylon their two live LP's (Live At The Empty Keg 1 and 2) at Greg Walker his known label Syn-Phonic (in fact his first two releases!). When I received these two albums I was delighted because Babylon is a 'cult band', their studio LP from 1978 is a highly sought after item. But what a disappointement, the recording qualities are so inferior that it's almost impossible to judge this fine USA band. Their concerts were legendary multi-media events featuring screen-projections, theatre and interaction with the public. The music has obvious hints from mid-Genesis: Tony Banks inspired keyboards, Hackett-like guitar and even the drums evoke Phil Collins, only the bass work is in the vein of Chris Squire. So Babylon is a Genesis clone? No, elements like the very distinctive vocals and many subtle, sometimes very wayward ideas make Babylon to a band to check out!
