4 stars AIRLORD "Clockwork Revenge" provoke in my mind a sensation of happiness... and at the same time of sadness... I can explain ; the happiness is due to the fact that I stay perplexed of how rich the progressive music was in the 70's, when I discover a "lost pearl" like this album and the sadness comes to the fact which on those days was very difficult record an album (due the high cost of vinyl), a fact which made simply disappeared a countless treasures like this... very different of today, by the advent of cd and digtal records process. Aside these lamentations, talking about the disk in question, is a very interesting album, mixing the most varied influences passing through several styles of progressive music. Already in the first track "Clockwork Revenge" you can feel a "taste" of GENESIS ( mainly in the lead vocals ), FRANK ZAPPA ( listen the children's choir ) and a great similarity with the musical lines of YEZDA URFA ( obviously a band which probably they don't know ). In the track 2 "Pictures In A Puddle" in their first and bucolic part reminds me STRAWBS and in a breaf and more heavy passage the band sounds like J. TULL or maybe GENTLE GIANT. The track 3 "Ladies of the Night" seems to me like a FRUPP reminiscence. In the other tracks you can find another influences, like in the track 5 "Out of the Woods" again the J TULL flute and pastoral scenery ( very close to Bennefit phase). In a general way, although this album don't represents none newness, but, is a very good work with beautiful arrangements ! My rate is 4 stars !!!
