4 stars Norway's prime 70's band (much better than Titanic or Aunt Mary at least on their fist two albums) along with Junipher Greene in the prog dept. Ruphus 's debut album is a real masterstroke as they manged to have one of those exhilarating sound of those fantastic 70's british band somewhere between MkII Purple and Genesis (if you can imagine that!?!? or Heep and Yes. Wooooow , I'd better calm down on my description here but there is a little of that and some of that everything that made me love this first album a lot when I discovered it in the early 90's. Although , they are strong in every instruments , the musicianship is not excellent but much better than some of the newer bands doing prog but the thing that strikes me the most is the enthousiasm of the players especially the singer.
