Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars This is the last album where the group will use the prefix The to their name, thus entering the 70's and their prog era with a superb album. The classic quartet is now definitely leaving the pure pop or psych/pop realm they had specialized in so far. And the artwork is setting the tone with the grab the ring front picture and especially with the excellent back cover picture featuring the band in concert in some underground club. This is really the first of string of classic albums and the tone is set by the wild title track, the cover of Byrds' best song.

But let's check out the four shorter tracks on the A-side: Landing is a solid hard rocker, harder than anything they had done until now, and Hay's voice and pronunciation (one of the best by non-English native speaker around the world) is simply perfect. You'd swear this is an early hard rock group somewhere between Uriah, Purple or Wishbone. Better to come is the 6-muns Devil's Servant, where to group show they've got all the chops, including dramatics and often changing tempo. Gerritzen's bass playing is outstanding, but guitarist Kooymans gets prime exposure from this track, where singer Hay also indulge into some flute playing. One Huge Road is about The Road and maybe the least convincing track, but segues into the superb Everyday's Torture, which indeed I could listen to almost everyday. Together with Servant, Torture are two typical semi-progressive tracks

The flipside is filled by the Byrds song Eight Miles High, in one of its best ever version, even if in its sidelong version, it can't avoid some lengths and the succession of each member's respective solos. Certainly the first classic GE album, 8MH gets most of its reputation for the sidelong cover, but this writer prefers to remember three tracks on the first side.

3 stars Eight Miles High is typiacal result of its era. Mixing the early heavy rock influences of VANILLA FUDGE and CREAM with the emerging prog styles, it brings several interesting hard-rocking Hammond-laden and fuzzy guitar-pierced sound, the best parts of which can be heard in the memorable riff opening Landing and Sabbathesque dark and menacing chords of Everydays Torture. The sidelong improvised rendition of the BYRDS' classic is unfortunately too long and filled with unneeded soli. Had the title been finished at about 9 minutes it would have present an excellent psyche acid jam composition. Overall good album, but faraway from the bands best moments.

PERSONAL RATING: 3,5

P.A. RATING: 3

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars As Hughes rightly mentions in his review, this is the first GE classic album.

Gone is the mellowish and popish mood of the early days, and welcome is the hard-rocking and somewhat psychedelic music I really like.

It starts all wild with the gorgeous ''Landing''. I bet you! What a landing! A great heavy rock song by all means. But what to say about the more sophisticated ''Song Of A Devil's Servant''? A pure jewel that features a splendid keyboard part, and even some prog moments!

This album is truly on the heavy side: ''One Huge Road'' is a typical example. It is quite remarkable though that a band from The Netherlands did play such music in '69. There is even some sort of doom mood during the very good ''Everyday's Torture''. A great crescendo track with a huge vocal part from Barry. But the man is gifted of course.

The first part of this album is quite astonishing. Such different from their previous records, it must have been received as a shock at the time, I guess. The big GE is well on its way to glory.

Now, the long (almost 19 minutes) cover ''Eight Miles High''. It is true to say that some passages are indeed too long but hey! This was recorded in '69, remember? While it was usually more the tendency to play such long songs while on stage; some bands did this exercise on studio albums as well (''Get Ready'' from ''Rare Earth'' for instance although this sounded as a live track. But these ''audience'' reaction were actually added on).

I admit that this track could have been cut into two, but the band was maybe lacking of original work to produce a full album. Still, this one as a whole fully deserves 7 out of 10. Upgraded to four stars.

Review by Chris S
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars This is where GE began to sound very serious and hence IMO the most progressive sounding album released from them thus far, Eight Miles High has that perfect conceptual feel about it even though the title track is a Byrds rendition and a nineteen minute version at that. The album starts off with the aptly titled ' landing'. This is arguably the strongest song off this album, quite heavy sounding but instantly sets the mood for the rest of the album. Rinus Gerritsen's bass works a treat throughout and Kooymans and Hay do a fine job in the vocal department. 'Everydays Torture' is another solid sombre work before the Side 2 epic title track plays out. GE at their most experimental perhaps, also this album had a definite presence around the early 70's which meant it was very influential too.A solid four stars for this release.
