4 stars Colosseum II is one of the most underrated progressive/jazz fusion bands ever IMO.Colosseum II is a fine combo featuring talented as well as skilled musicians that will influence later one thousands and thousands of musiciands from any genre. First album released in 1976 named Strange new fleash, offers right from the start the hudge potential this band weill have on their all 3 albums released before disbanding in 1978. Probably this album is my least fav from all 3, not because is bad, far from it, is quite excellent and a perfect example is The dark side of the moog, like the rest.complexity meets melodic passages into one unit, the musicianship is top notch, each musician is master at their instruments, specially and I simply love how works Gary Moore in duel with Don Airey, fabulous, and this bond will be even much more explored on the next two albums. So, easy 4 stars, excellent , all 3 albums are recomended, Colosseum II is no less captivating and inventive then any other band from their field like Brand X, Édition Spéciale more well known.
