4 stars This is a less pompous version of such "organ-drive progressive rock", in the vein of the late NICE and QUATERMASS that I don't like very much, but resembling also the band ELP as well, in a lighter vein (these latter in some circumstances only). They have got a stronger orientation to the hard rock stuff by DEEP PURPLE, unlike ELP and NICE, by adding however some sweltering guitar/organ interplays, whose long length, in a few songs fortunately, is quite bearable.

Interesting, but totally out of a "progressive rock contest"...
