Ken at the Laser's Edge says: "...One thing for certain is the band is clearly in love with the sounds of the 70s. They cite early Deep Purple and Pink Floyd as influences. You can clearly hear Pink Floyd sounds. Deep Purple a bit but you'll also hear Iron Butterfly and a bunch of late 60s, early 70s organ driven bands. Plenty of wicked guitarwork as well. Canterbury sounds are here as well. Overall it shoots for a certain vibe, basically British proto-prog and hits the mark. You could easily be fooled into thinking this is an album released in 1971. It's a hell of a lot of fun."
"Very excellent keyboard trio retro-prog from Sweden. [---] This is psychedelic infused progressive rock that channels the heritage of 1970-era Pink Floyd mixed with the Hammond work of Jon Lord with early Deep Purple; they are aiming for and hitting the UK 1970/71 'proto-prog sound - a pretty good place to be!" - Wayside

  1. Damn, that must be the best prog rock record i've listened in a long while. Despite The Whinstons, nothing came close to this.
