3 stars By the time this album was released, rock music had taken its steady shape already where many pioneers had created their masterpiece - like Genesis with "Foxtrot" and "Lamb Lies", Yes with "Close To The Edge" and "Relayer", Pink Floyd with "Dark Side of The Moon" and "Wish You Were Here", King Crimson with "In The Court of Crimson King" and "Red", Camel with "Mirage", Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come tried to penetrate the rock music market with another style. Even though they are unique but it's hard to deny that the band was somewhat influenced by Frank Zappa and Jimi Hemdrix. But that's okay. If you were there in the seventies, you would definitely agree with me that "Sunrise" was one of the songs that colored the seventies. Look at the style! It starts with an ambient soft vocal in punctuated style which grows slowly into high points with sort of soaring (softly) hammond organ sound. Yes, this song rules! Not just it's different but it demonstrates a great combination of energetic and powerful voice line by Arthur Brown augmented with soft soaring organ work with blues-based guitar work. The guitar playing style is truly killing me! It reminds me to the glory days of rock music (to be precise: classic rock music) in the seventies. No one would argue on the powerful composition of this track; and in fact this track helped shape rock music standing in the seventies.

Throughout this double LP album Arthur Brown delivers his vocal energetically combined with accentuated rhythm section. Some tracks are exproratory in nature like "Triangles", "Mental Monster". "Space Plucks (including Dem Bones)" is another track worthy enjoying.

The music in this album is really diverse. There is no such instrument that truly dominates the music - each song features different kind of solo or rhythm section. Guitar is probably the instrument that you might need to observe as the style is very seventies with heavy influence from blues. Another instrument to observe is of course keyboards / organ. It's a very good album and memorable for me personally. Keep on proggin' ..!

5 stars I have been a loyal fan of Arthur's for over thirty year's, and have met him on two occasions, both whilst living in Cardiff. On our first meeting back in 1987, he gladly autographed every single album and cd, that up until then had been released, and thankfully i had my camera with me to recor ... (read more)

5 stars I listened to this music every night from the age of 15. It is beautifull - nothing can touch the Hymn as a pure object of peace and harmony in this world. If anyone has the Lost Ears digitized I'm up for buying it (in a non capitalist non conformist arena of course) [email protected] - ... (read more)
