Prog Reviewer
4 stars A rare non-soundtrack album from Goblin sees the group setting forth their own spooky vision of symphonic RPI. Several sections of the album - such as the first part of Dr Frankenstein, before the wild synthesiser-driven close - show a heavy funk influence to an extent beyond what you'd normally expect for a prog band from the era, pulled off to perfection thanks to Fabio Pignatelli's exceptional bass work. Who knows, perhaps the band were hoping to get some work scoring blaxploitation films, but either way Goblin manage to make the incorporation of funk into a symphonic/eclectic prog soundscape seem perfectly natural, which makes this album worth a listen for anyone with a taste for prog that doesn't turn its nose up at other contemporary genres.
Warthur | 4/5 |
