4 stars First - I really enjoy every Fruupp album, seams that their albums are great, delivering some Genesis symphonic prog, well not like the masters but close and second - I don't understand why their albums are rated so low, really. As I said on the previous review I've made on their last two albums gathered as this one 2 on 1 this compilation is really great to my ears. The first two albums - Future legends from 1973 and second one Seven secrets from 1974 are putet together here.

The first album of Fruupp - Future legends - 1973 is an underrated album in symphonic prog world, in fact all Fruupp albums are unnoticed by many prog listners. The music is well done, well played, has some very fine moments on guitar and keys, the overall impression is good, not far from Genesis same period. This irish band delivers some very strong pieces like Decision, Song For A Thought , the rest are also good. So 4 stars to this one easely.

Seven secrets - 1974 - the second album of Fruupp is another example of symphonic prog who is very underrated in my opinion, all the pieces stand as good, not a weak moments here, even in places some very refined and unique moments like :White Eyes, Three spires, the rest are great. Again a worthy album to my ears , 4 stars easely.

In comparation with their last two albums these first two are a little more uptempo , in places even more rougher, but great non the less. So , this compilation needs 4 stars for sure, all 4 Fruupp albums stand as great to me, and I'm not agree that they are a simple copy of Genesis ( Gabriel era), they are a great early to mid '70's prog band who has their share of fame and glory 'till their last concert of them in 1976 when they disbanded.
