5 stars Here was a truly fantastic band that was overshadowed by the success of the prog giants in the 1970's and this is unfortunate both for GNIDROLOG and for those casual prog fans who will never have the opportunity to discover this lost gem. Given the elicit nature of their music, it's hard to draw a comparison. Gnidrolog combines the bluesy prog and folky flute flavor of JETHRO TULL's earlier albums with the dark atmosphere and wind instruments of VAN DER GRAFF GENERATOR. Add into the mix a generous helping of originality and you have the great prog beast Gnidrolog.

The band strays away from long drawn out solos and instead focuses on playing as one tight unit and does so very well. The music contains a variety of layers and intertwined melodies keeping your ears plenty busy from beginning to end. The track Ships is a particularly moving piece featuring excellent use of woodwind instruments to back up a catchy acoustic guitar riff. The vocals on the track are near euphoric, but really every track here is magical. Lady Lake will no doubt spark the interest of any fans of more adventurous, eclectic prog acts, and those who are fans of the darker side of prog in the vain of VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and KING CRIMSON.
