4 stars I have got this album (the 2 on 1 CD.. coupled with their 2nd album)

Having never heard the album version of "Horizons" (My version is editted, as one of the folk call it "the horrible version".) The single version as its called sounds great.. This album as a whole is just pure real music! Cannot be faulted, at the time I had bought this I was going through a terrible bad time in my personal life, and this album really cheered me up.. I have played GSOE to death, I just love it!

There are no turkeys on this album at all.. Each song flows perfectly, and a true treat! Just a shame they disbanded after the second album (which is also a real gem!)

If you love your prog rock to have that classic edge to it, you will love this! If you find the 2 on 1 CD buy it (as its worth the money.. rather than purchasing 2 seperate albums)

Bass player went on to play with The Blockheads.. the vocalist had a single in the charts in 1988 as part of Star Turn on 45 Pints "Pump Up The Bitter" (hmmm... I bought it.. and .. moving on quick!)

Frippertron | 4/5 |
