A mistaken, but worthwhile, buy...,
This review is from: Pathfinder (Audio CD)
I was bought this album as a Christmas present during the 1970's by a relative who thought it was actually an Opera. I have loved it ever since and am so glad to see the band's albums have been re-released. I shall have to stock up I think.
Highlights for me include the purely instrumental "Stretcher" which is really beautiful.The final track throws everything at the listener from wild screams to a thunderclap device fixed inside a toilet. The lyrics are typical 70's gothic which nowadays bring a wry smile, but the musicianship is of a very high standard and the variety of material here is a real tonic in today's one-dimensional world.
A mistaken purchase, then, but a welcome and rewarding one. Think I'll give it a spin now, actually.
