Review by Eetu Pellonpaa
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This album was quite sympathetic experience, being a reissue for the 1977 album "Eileen". It contains some sincere dreamy psych rock poetry, and is dominated by keyboard sounds doing both sharp piano and organ chord runs cloaked within tapestries of large spacey sound layers. Also lead male vocals with supporting female backing vocals are quite front, and this singing is much better here than on the first record. The band has matured also with compositions and musical ideas during their years.

The album is like a sad autumn evening, full of mellow sorrow and dramatic melodies. Quite simple compositional structures are studied with different approaches and easy arrangements. From classic psychedelic progressive rock perspective interesting moments worth mentioning might be "Passage", being a minimalistic surge to a Hawkwind sounding cosmic vortex. The beginning of "Sea of Melted Lead" has very beautiful dreamy surreal soundscapes, which are later expanded to synthesizer illuminated dystopic vision culminating to a beautiful guitar solo. "Eileen" is also quite interesting, very nice sounding long hypnotic pulsing aural cavern. The title track of the reissue is clearly the best, having very descriptive name for loose adventure of sounds where the rock band jams slightly in manner of early Santana, strengthened with powerful Tangerine Dream sounding synthesizer presence, and concluding to a hollow choral singing.

I was positively surprised by this album, as my expectations after their first album weren't so big. One comparison could be a lesser neurotic incarnation of Bachdenkel's "Lemmings" album. There's also an acoustic folky tune as a bonus track on this reissue version. Thus a recommendable little album for those interested of warmhearted synth dominated psychedelic prog, and hunters of European underground art rock records who are not searching "Eileen" record due its really beautiful gatefold covers.
