5 stars Retro prog heaven!

Out of nowhere, that is where this CD seems to come from. But hey, firmly rooted in the seventies these musicians brings us back in the times when prog was really progressive. It is an almost perfect amalgation of Black Sabbath, Barclay James Harvest, Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd and lots of other progressive diamants. It is a vintage treatment to the ear, since all songs are balanced, strong, catchy, adventurous. These guys made one mistake: the recordings were done with the help of equipment from the same seventies, so the sound is far from crystal clear. For the rest, truly 5 stars with special attention for the title song, which is a league on its own. I canīt wait to see them on stage.

Keet | 5/5 |
