4 stars Whilst the top-tier prog bands had become rock aristocracy crafting baroque and finely crafted masterpieces by 1973, the somewhat more freewheeling spirit of the early prog scene - more plugged in to the counter-cultural underground and prog's psychedelic heritage, a little rougher around the edges as far as the production standards went, and a bit less hyped up about classical music - was being kept alive by Fantasy. Their debut album, Paint a Picture, reminds me at points of Pampered Menial by Pavlov's Dog with more accessible vocals and, at points, a greater influence from funk and other less traditional inspirations for symphonic prog. Although I think its reputation has been artificially boosted by its long period of unavailability, it's still a charming album which fans of the sound of the early prog scene will find delightful.
