1969 was a great year, a damn year to rock music...All that stuff of tragic Altamont concert and the ending of the idealistic flower-power movement, bla-bla-bla...Well, all this turned music a lot heavier, harder, cynic and complex, resulting in the advent of progressive-fusion scene, the synthesis of all underground music of the era... Audience, a british combo with a fantastic singer and a prime-division musicians made in that year a truly classic, now so underrated!! Why ignoring, for instance, one of the most beautiful saxophone-in-rock like the one in the first cut of the album, "Banquet" or the tenderness of "Poet" and "Pleasant Convalescence" (this one distinctively crafted), the exciting rolling-drums of "Man on Box", the bittersweet soul of "Leave It Unsaid" or the nervous raw-power of "Heaven Was An Island"? This album had been a rarity in cd, but now Luminous Records reissued it with 3 bonus-tracks, especially interesting is "Paper Round". It was a pitty that these guys never had the relevance they deserve!!!
