3 stars 3.5 stars really!!

This group put out their first two albums on the great Vertigo label and is a typical release from this progressive label from those years. While not a full-blown progressive band as they have a more psychedelic feel, this is one of those proto-prog album that comes along with a fuzz guitar and no keyboard.

It does contain many elements you might expect on a psychedelic rock band with heavy progressive influences (it even has a long pieces Dedicated to Sid? Self-explanatory is it not?), along with some lengths in the solo dept (dare I say a little self-indulgence or half-jams?), but it has delicious flutes and good interplay between all members. The singer has one of those voices that can set you back as it is a bit aggressive but should not deter you if you are into VdGG, Audience or Gnidrolog. My personal faves of contains New One, Sid, Enterprise, and Think Of Life.

A promising debut album, but nothing groundbreaking either (and therefore not essential), their first two albums are a sure hit with the hippy-jam rock crossed over with great prog overtones
