4.0 out of 5 stars Here there be elves ..., 26 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Prince Of Heavens Eyes (Audio CD)
Elves beckon here, no mistake. A first-time reissue of the catalogue of a symphonic Classics-meet-Celts act from Northern Ireland that put the P in progressive reaches a creative high on 1974's The Prince of Heaven's Eyes. Based on a short story about a feller called Mud Flanigan's search for the end of the rainbow (well, it's 70s prog) by band manager and booklet writer Paul Charles, it's a consistently entertaining romp. Lead guitar and keyboards led with strings in abundance, it's a concept album and as such has the narrative drive to retain the cohesion missing from other elements of the band's catalogue. `Annie Austere', `Prince of Heaven' and `The Perfect Wish' stand out and Esoteric (not Visionary as listed here) have re-produced the little book that came with the original LP. A commendable package, with bonus tracks - Prince is their crowning glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like 1970's Genesis, then this is for you, 30 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Prince of Heaven's Eyes (Audio CD)
This might be the best never-heard-of album ever made. Fruupp made 4 albums and this is by far their best. The only downside is their singer. He is just tolerable and nowhere near as good as Peter Gabriel. But never mind, this is great stuff anyway. A real classic in the 1970's Genesis style!

5.0 out of 5 stars Frupp CD, 2 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Prince Of Heavens Eyes (Audio CD)
My husband had this on vinyl when we were a young courting couple over 30 years ago. It was one of our favourites but over the years we were unable to play it. We have both searched over the years for it unsuccessfully, so you can imagine my delight when I found it on Amazon. I was able to purchase a set of 3 all by the same band all which arrived quickly despite the bad weather and in good condition. He was absolutely delighted on Christmas morning as was I when we listened to the fairy like Irish music. Thank you so much for reuniting us with this brilliant band.
