Prog Reviewer
3 stars Ditching the metal-tinged distorted guitar that had featured on their debut and bringing in Doris Norton on vocals, Jacula's second album is once again dominated by sinister organ music and moody vocals. A bit more varied this time, the album is reminiscent of the fusion of Italian prog and horror soundtracks which would be pioneered in subsequent years by bands such as Goblin, so in this respect the unit seem to be ahead of their time, though what could have been a top-class album is reduced to merely being rather good thanks to lacklustre production and Long Black Magic Night; perhaps sticking to Latin vocals would have been helpful? Furthermore, on repeated listens the "spooky vocals and organ" gimmick wears increasingly thin.
Warthur | 3/5 |
