after many years hearing and reading strange reviews about this group, i finally found some of their stuff, i been collecting music now for over 10 years, but this band never made it into the top 100 even...! its just normal. nothing to grip or excite you here.. dated and the thing is that it aint really that good anyway, basic songs, no shrowd of mystery, no weird drugged out psyched up pop.. just music. maybe its cause im on the east coast of scotland, i cant get into it... but it doesnt gel, maybe i was expecting more from the reviews i read, but they are on a par with quicksilver messenger service and iron butterfly... they arent that good either! nothing here to excite or freak, just sounds like bad 60's from people who never lived dangerous or crazy, which i thought that 60's world was all about.
SO.. too safe to be in the collection, i gotta give a thumbs down for this... anyway thats the personal opinion, musically its just boring, i was expecting to get zoomed, freaked at the guitar work (et al) but just doesnt happen, all sounds a bit too monotone. so many better bands out there, so you can pay yer hard earned cash to them instead. lots more psyche and garage and prog that is more important than this will ever be.
nothing here to make the band live up to the hype, and the hype writers should get out more. they are obviously missing some thing real out there!
i dont write many bad reviews, but if i do.. its earned!
