3 stars Anyone looking for musical insanity? Yes? Well, maybe you ought to check out the Galactoc zoo dossiers instead, because Chisholm in my bosom isn't really that insane. Is it any good, then? The album possessess certain qualities and undoubted charm, that's for sure.

The first six tracks on the album are all listenable at variyng degrees. Nothing special or overly brilliant, just enjoyable pop-rock. The greatest effort and the track which makes the album worth every penny is the title track. It is not as crazy or wild as the earlier stuff by Arthur Brown but it is a lovely track, brilliant in it's own right and a delight to listen to.

For the last few days I have dedicated my attention to this particular track. It has got some wonderful progressive elements which strikes great chords with me. The lyrics are amusing, the vocal melodies great and the instrumentation fabolous (as expected). The british quirkiness is there, alongside a feel of inspiration, though maybe slightly forced.

Anyway, you could skip the first six tracks of the album, as far as I am concerned, and head straight for the title track. Get on board and make that journey towards Chisholm. I dare say you won't be disappointed.
