From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I have soft spot for middle eastern influenced music in general,especially when is incorporated by a prog band.Having said that I find unforgiveablethat this album is rewieved by only one person on this site."Embryo's reise",the mighty double lp is probably the best album of middle eastern influenced prog I have ever listened to it.The way Embryo mixes their unique jazz-rock(with emphasis on jazz) with sounds of egzotic instruments is nothing short of breathtaking.Album is recorded during their visit to Afghanistan,Pakistan and India in 1978/79.and represents a pinnacle of explorations of native music roots of aforementioned countries.Schneeball records reissue ommited three songs from original lp due to lost and damaged maser tapes,still album deserves way much more attention than many other purely jazz albums by the band.I urge all real prog lovers to find and explore this album'cause it is a real masterpiece.
