The Aphrodites Child track was on one of the recent Mojo CD's, and it blew me away.I had no idea what to expect, and it was pretty damm good.

Yes - the title of their eponymous third LP.

It was at that stage that the lead singer went off to join a Buddhist monastery.

Somewhat downhill for the band after that but the first two are certainly worth searching out

It's a cracker isn't it? I had it in my BCB cup list a couple of years back but it didn't help me get any votes :(

This for a non-prog fan!!??
It changes time signature every bloody bar.
It's rather annoying to my ears.

I'm sure it's lovely if you like this sort of thing but I can't see it reeling in too many people who don't.

This fits the theme of the thread better. You have to make a conscious effort to ignore the dumb lyrics bit it has some nice melodies and harmonies and pretty much rocks out properly at the end.

Whenever I accidentally hear this I always think that they're just a proper singer and lyricist away from being bearable.
