From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars The debut album by Ambrosia is the most progressive one but still does not quality beyond an average prog-related material despite scoring high in a pop-rock territory.

Excellent vocal harmonies, catchy songs and various instruments used belong to the definitive highlights. Neither compositions nor instrumetanl performances amaze with complexity but the musicians are competent enough to find themselves somewhere between Eagles/Kansas. The keyboardists and the drummer seem to be the most proficient players here.

"Mama frog" bears echoes of Yes and Canterbury, it is one of the most progressive tracks on this album.

Solemn moments with church organ and angel harmonies are present in the beginning and end of the last track as well as in a more rocking fashion on track, too.

Though a higly professional, well arranged (by Alan Parson) and thought-out record, it can't get more than 3.5 stars for it is not special progressive effort.
