4 stars A beloved band among progressive rock followers, PAVLOV'S DOG have their roots in a small band called ''High on a Small Hill'' in 1972.Three of the band's members decided to form another group,focusing on composing original material and so,after several auditions,PAVLOV'S DOG were born in St.Louis around 1974.Some early tracks,recorded at a Illinois-based studio,would reach their debut ''Pampered menial'' in 1975.In this album the band blends the well-known hard rock sound of LED ZEPPELIN and DEEP PURPLE with classical touches,nice instrumental sections and expressive,unique vocals delivered by the great David Surkamp.In ''Pampered menial'' the rockin' guitars and the fantastic grooves are blended with driving violins,beautiful mellotron work and delicate flutes,resulting an album filled with passion,sensitivity and originality.Highly recommended,''Pampered menial'' deserves a place among the best art/hard rock albums ever to see the light!
