4 stars Beavers on dry land?

What a surprise! A nearly unknown dutch group with all qualities you guess. This is their first release from 2002. The vocals by Erik Groenweg are remarkable and unique - drums and bass playing very dynamic and powerful. 'Culley on Bleecker Street' starts with typical street sound samples and then developes to an excellent rock song with much variety and changing speed. 'Oversight' appears in the same vein with very good guitar work. 'Wintersong' is dominated by a simple riff - a confusing mix of psychedelic and hard rock. You are celebrating a rock party? Highly recommmended in this case: 'Hope you don't mind', 'Like this' and 'We are the sun'.

Conclusion: more than 50 exciting minutes of dutch progressive rock.
