Review by Matti
COLLABORATOR Neo-Prog Team
3 stars This band operated in England but most of their members had an Ethnic background. Indian philosophy and music culture can be heard in their music. I'm not usually very keen on Eastern music but here East and West are united nicely. Quintessence may be of interest to listeners of early jazz-rock or instrumentally oriented Psychedelia, even if you don't actually expect to enjoy Indian influences.

This 68-minute compilation includes selections (some of them as live versions) from their first three albums, 1969-1971, which I believe is their best era. Probably a good introduction to the band. For me this is enough anyway. Some tracks I enjoyed to some degree, some I didn't.

4 stars Dive deep into the oceans of bliss of essential Quintessence's devotional songs full of love, compassion, meditation and rock. That makes this compilation really an excellent addition to any prog music collection. If you do like them, you wouldn't miss their other albums too. ... (read more)

4 stars Quintessence were always rather odd - a jazz/rock based band that took Indian philosophy so seriously that they based almost all of their music on it. This is an excellent sampler of their albums, containing almost all the essential tracks, but one which will give the listener a true flavour of w ... (read more)
