2 stars 'Earthly paradise' was releasd in 1977 by the German Symphonic band 'Epidaurus'. The band had learned their Prog-lessons well and integrated elements of Classic Prog bands like Genesis, Yes, Eloy without much originality.

The record is heavily based on keyboard sounds, some Tony Banks trademark sounds, some Keith Emerson, a Kraftwerk influenced Electro Pop track and on 3 tracks a singer with a voice similar to Annie Haslam (less good so and with intonation problems).

The record is pleasant, but at least after the fourth track, I got the feeling of having heard all this before and better. 'Epidaurus' delivers some nice easy going symphonic prog, but misses bite, tension and above all identy : the band sounds like a 'Best Of Symphonic'. I might put the record on, from time to time, for dishwashing
