5 stars Rare and fantastic album! In fact, it is third album, based on similar original material.Short - lived German band 2066 & Then has recorded just one studio album during their existance, which was released at United Artist Records in 1972.

Many years later Second Battle Records released some compilation based on vault studio records ( with slightly differend track list). "Reflections On The Past" is third band's album and second Second Battle Records studio archive compilation. Track list again is a bit different from both previous albums.

First of all, the band plays fantastic music of it's time! Keyboards based heavy prog reminds early Uriah Heep with perfect melodies and agressive vocal. But the music is more prog, you can hear Jethro Tull-like flute and complex drum rhythms there. Hammond passages reminds early Lord's work in Deep Purple, plenty of moments look as taken from early King Crimson albums. But both together, the music is enough orininal, well played and catching your head and heart.

Sound quality is average ( ok, but it's orinal record from 1971-1972). It's only pity, that band didn't leave us more recordings!

One of the best heavy prog albums from early 70-th and for sure best album from that time recorded by German band.
