3 stars Son of its age. This is one of the many British bands that moved to Italy in the late 60s, mainly because the RCA studios in Rome were famous worldwide for their devices, but also for the market that was very open to British artists. This is the only one album published by this band. Pinball wizard is a Who cover but all the album is very close to the Who's sound. Rock-beat with good choirs and good playing. On the second track the lead vocalist sonds a bit like Robert Plant and some pauses remind to Moody Blues. "Where is my mind" is probably the track that gave them the psychedelic label even if without some excesses in the use of keyboards and distirted sounds. Here things become more interesting.

"Society's child" could be a Moody Blues song. I'm not very deep into Moody Blues, so it may be a cover, who knows?

"Tin Soldier" with the initial 30 seconds of gimmicks is another track that can be defined psychedelic, but more in the sense of Beatles' revolver than of Syd Barret. The choirs are very close to the Who.

"Forget it, I got it" Is close again to the Who but I hear some early Led Zeppelin here, mainly in the lead vocalist.

"Mistery tour" Is a Beatles cover, but unrecognisable enough. More psychedelic and effectively has some added parts so that it's more definable as an original song with reminds to the Beatles' famous song.

"Sitting on Top of the world" is a blues in line with the British blues revival of the 60s. Something already heard.

"Evil woman" is a dark rock-blues that makes me think to Led Zeppelin in some parts.

Not a bad album, but no more than a curiosity. I think this was a promising group that unfortunately disbanded after its first work. Enjoyable but not essential.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
