3 stars A band that falls into that gray area of prog rock during the early 1970s when everyone and their brother was getting into it with mixed results. That being said, 'The Sleeper Wakes' is not a half-bad record, though only about four of the cuts are above average. But those few are excellent, even brilliant at times, and certainly superior to material of similar ilk by Greenslade at their duller moments or Tempest (UK). Keyboardist Morgan Fisher leads a kind of ELP organ prog meets Frank Zappa jamming with Cartoon (American). Classical rockers 'Fire in the Head', 'The Right' and avant-symphonic pieces like 'What is - is What' make this easy-to-scoff-at album worth a few dollars if you see it.
