5 stars Here goes a rather brief review of a stupendous heavy prog album:

I listened to this album about a month ago, after not listening to it for a while, and as I listened I just was floored how good it was. Featuring former Iron Butterfly members and ex-frontman of Deep Purple Rod Evans, this was supergroup of sorts. The formula of hard rock and progressive rock on their debut predates Rush's (very non-prog) debut by 2 years! Add some Floydian psychedelic flavor and you get one hell of an album.

When looking at the number of tracks one might get the impression that it just has several short songs - that is misleading. Most of the tracks blend together as a continuing song, and various themes are revisited throughout the album. And, of course, the album rocks. Why this band did not reach a greater audience I don't know, but anyone interested in the heavy prog sub-genre should own this album. It is spectacular. 5 stars.
