4 stars As one of bystanders of prog rock of that time, I can tell that I've never heard of them although I closely followed ongoings on the flourishing prog rock scene. And so it happened that I've discovered this band thanks to this site and immediately acquired an vinyl re-issue of this album as a basis for this review.The album opener 'I Could Never Be A Soldier' brings catchy melody line,nice flute and particularly impressive ending with strong lead guitar,bass and brass; follower 'Ship' has mighty sax intro fading into acoustic guitar sequent with supportive bass; 'A Dog With No Collar' is acoustic ballad closing side one of the record.The title track opens side two and is in my opinion, together with 'Soldier' , highlight of the album; piano sound dominates in 'Same Dreams' while 'Social Embarrassment' is to me less impressive number.The fourth track on this side of the record 'Harry's Toenail (Reprise)' is guitar driven instrumental and seems to be a bonus one. The sound of this album inevitably makes you find similarity to Jethro Tull or Van Der Graaf, the bands at the peak of their career at the time , and I guess that this was the main reason why Gnidrolog stayed in shadow.But it's never to late for good and true music material, as it is this one, to come out of the shadow. Therefore, I'm very glad that I've complemented my prog collection with this release.
