Review by Progfan97402
2 stars Gabriel Bondage was a band from Chicago that released two albums on the Dharma label. 1977's Another Trip to Earth was their second (and final) album. This was made available on colored vinyl (blue, red, or white, depending on what version you have). It's became a minor collector's item, but hasn't shot through the roof, price-wise.

Mostly this album is worthy for it's opening cut, "Take it on a Dare". This is a truly great, full-on prog number, lots of great use of guitar and synth. It sounds like a more proggy version of their local contemporaries, Styx. Even the vocals sounds a lot like James Young. But the band quickly dropped prog with mixture of country and soft rock, in a not most appealing fashion either. "Long Time"? A country ballad with steel guitar? What on Earth? Most of these other songs might not have the country overtones, but nothing all that great either. "Fallen Angels" is the final piece and at least they try to go back to prog territory, but not as successfully as "Take it on a Dare".

Personally, I find the folky Angel Dust to be the better album. Basically just get Another Trip to Earth for "Take it on a Dare".
