4 stars Throw yourself at their feet - listening to only the beginning of South Texas. How droning Bill's autoharp be I'm always amazed. However wait, not only the sounds of his autoharp could determine COLD SUN's psychedelic musical style...please listen more carefully.

Yes I cannot be permissive with leaving such a great psychedelic progressive rock band (and simultaneously a follower of 13th Floor Elevators) still obscure underground. The frontman Bill MILLER, the autoharpist, got to be a backup-band member of Roky Erickson - he was a real admirer of Elevators and at the same time a real developer of Elevators' sound and style I appreciate. Not simply with a dry guitar solo, warped voices and wetly lyrical drums & percussion like Elevators, Bill and all members of COLD SUN tried to incorporate some progressive structure into their Elevators-based style - Neues! Their new trial should have catered for the psychedelic rock scene in those days...but, sad to say...their dream was broken out by the bankruptcy of the label Sonobeats.

Please let me say that COLD SUN should owe much of their psychedelically progressive essence to ALL the members' play, not only Bill's eccentric autoharp sounds. Hugh's wetly lyrical (and low-fi) drumming and Mike's heavily trailing bass are somewhat comfortable, in spite of their slightly unstable rhythm. Tom's fuzzy and unworldly guitar solo can remind us a brightly colourful flower garden. And strongly impressed with Bill's warped and cheesy (sorry!) voices! Don't be deceived with poppy-flavoured opening of each song, especially the third track Here In The Year. :-) The story (song) continually alters itself like a chameleon okay?

Again said, it's a pity they could not release this terrific album in the early 70s. They could have been one of the psychedelic progressive rock pioneers I consider.

4 stars Although it has some minor flaws, this is one of the most interesting albums I've ever come across. The far-from-professional production and recording quality doesn't take away much from the album's magic, actually it adds very much to the atmosphere, you can feel how underground they are just ...
