3 stars Quatermass has been often compared with Emerson, Lake and Palmer, but this comparison is not precise. Yes, it had three members (bass, drums, keyboards) and yes, the band produced some heavy sound, but...

This album is more heavy rock with some prog elements (improvisations, a litlle bit of psychedelic). The first song, Black sheep of the family, is a great rocking cover (better than Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow's version). Unlike ELP, Quatermass played no classical tunes. I would compared them to Atomic Rooster - first albumin English version with no guitar.

Although it may seem that this is an average album not to be praised by prog fans, it is highly recommended. Very good hard music, almost essential.

Hejkal | 3/5 |
