4 stars Something I wouldn't class as rock nor even perhaps prog, or at least not musically. Being amazing and mind blown when entering folk, I quickly came to understand the excellency of Steeleye span and the genius of Comus, but this was something else. Pure and crisp. Folk had started to become stale and I was perhaps seeking some new genre, but this came out of nowhere and blew me away. The elegance and primal tunes left me relistening to this album multiple times, I couldn't escape the melodies with them constantly stuck in my head. Honestly, I never expected to like this as much as I did and am shocked it wasn't as well recieved as I would've expected. I understand it lacks the "prog feel" of Gryphon's later albums, but in a way by not having that it made it more progressive not bound by the same sound as them and being an entity totally alien on its own, for I'd never personally encountered this type of music at such an accessible level
