It’s a pop /rock album, reminiscent of much of the synth dross that dominated the 80s. Really really bland.

Sounds as though they were stoned whilst recording this album. A fine example of progressive rock from 50 years ago.

Well, psychedelia did lead to underground, which led to progressive, which did lead to prog.

As featured in the Prog Cup, some excellent yet sadly obscure prog from 1971 :ugeek:

Kaleidobolt - Bitter

Finnish 3some. Psych prog - they make a heck of a racket, but although I can see the attraction it’s a bit too noisy / heavy for my tastes.

Maarts - do you mean you are reading the Tull book or the attached article about the Tull book/

If the former - is the 7" ant good? I reckon not....

I do like that album. Sadly I don’t think he made another one but became an eminent Sci-fi writer.

Nine Stones Close - Leaves

A new line up has produced a harder edged sound - gone are the gently smooth vocals of Marc Atkinson, replaced by the more traditionally rock orientated Adrian O’Shaughnessy.

5 tracks and 58 mins is a clear indication that there are some epics involved and they are all pretty good. Think I prefer the earlier sound but it is good to see a band / project evolving.

The title track makes me out a liar as it takes a while to get going and is not really indicative of the rest of the album until past half way.
