Junipher Greene, what a nice name for a prog rock band, was one of the best and most well known progressive rock bands from Norway in early to mid '70's. They release 2 albums and each one worth to be discovered by many fans as possible. I had hard times finding this album , the second release of the band named Communnication, issued in 1973 on ON Records label. Finaly after couple of years searching I got it, on vinyl, because as far as I know this album never got a CD re issue, realy sad. So, after a good debute 2 years earlier, tha band that was a quintet , remains on this album a trio, but they manage to pull a realy solid heavy prog album all the way. reminescent of Host, Uriah Heep with some psychedelic touches, Communication was for many a step down from the debute, I wonder why because to me was a nice surprice and a pleasent listning. The title track for instance is excellent, nearly 13 min of great musicianship and good ideas , like it was in the glory days of prog. A fairly good album, while is nothing groundbreaking or innovative here, this second and aswell their swansong worth to be investigated.3-3.5 stars. The artwork is impressive, besides front cover, the inner drawing is awesome for sure.
