Review by ZowieZiggy
1 stars Gosh! What is this?

Lots of short to very short songs (four are clocking under the one minute barrier or just above it) which are totally useless. By any means, there are hardly anything progressive here! The bottom is reached with some heavy and dripping soul music ("Free Yourself"); and you can add a combo of almost the same but just with some more prog orientation ("Magna"). Although the syrupy string arrangements is nothing of my liking.

Lyrics are in English and don't convey a very authentic feel. What is really discouraging, are the weak trumpets which are to be listened all the way through. This album has NOTHING to do with symphonic prog ; but apparently their album "Cyclos" released in '74 is of another texture. But this will be for another review...

As far as I'm concerned, this album is totally uninteresting from A to Z. The dreadful soul experience can again be heard during "You Are My Sunshine". I bet you! Press next. In a hurry!

There is one very easy thing to do after such a listening: it is to rate such a "work". One star. Easily.

And this is really a maximum for such a sequence of poor songs. Don't spend your time on this one; but looking at the reviews, very few did.

Only one five stars rating before mine. Well, now it is balanced?
