4 stars The first of many to come.

A wonderful debut album with wonderful compositions.

A different approach than say Free Hand or In A Glass House. There's rock, jazzrockfusion and folk ingredients in the songs.

A lot of horns, wich will disappear in the latter albums of the band.

A definate highlight on the lp is the track Nothing At All, wich starts a beautiful folkish ballad and transforms into a sturdy rocker until the middlepart wich is a drumsolo accompanied by a beautiful pianopiece, simply brilliant.

Alucard is Dracula spelled backwards wich displays already the hints of humor by the band. If you have the original lp there's a story of the band (a fantasy of course) wich absolutely witty.

Enough said, 4 well earned stars!
