3 stars Interesting debut of AC is basically a typical product of its time. It is loaded with influences from British beat-psychedelia, cheesy 60s pop and some Greek folksy spices. Pop ballad "Rain and Tears" is the best known song, but more interesting moments for prog audience could be find in "The Grass Is No Green", "Shepherd and the Moon" and "Day of the Fool", where one can detect very early substance of what is to become more elaborated conceptual sounds of "666" or Vangelis' "Earth". Not many guitar is present here, but there is tons of Vangelis' keyboards, including Mellotrons, organ, harpsichord. Only, Roussos is sometimes irritating with his pitchy vocal and it is obvious that they were young, naive and full of ideas to experiment. Not a great album by any means, but a worthy early effort of folk-psychedelic "proto-prog".
