5 stars ***** FIVE STARS

First of all, I am a big fan of Colosseum and Dave Greenslade. His first solo album is simply marvelous. It is full of intelligent well-crafted rock-music. Being a debut this album is one of the best debut albums ever.

As for musicianship, the members from Colosseum are assurance for great music. Also McCulloch was a hell of a good drummer (ex-King Crimson's Lizard album - one of the best Crimson album). On this album (and the next one) the drums are extraordinary. Lawson is good keyboard player and I like his way of singing. Together the band Greenslade is more than excellent. No guitar can be heard here and that's also great. This is one of the few groups that can do rock music without guitar and still this instrument isn't missing!

All songs are great, my favourite is the opener Feather friends and Sundance. But the album works as the whole, although it is not a conceptional album.

This is a must have for anyone who is seriously a fan of unique rock music.

Hejkal | 5/5 |
