Item ID: 212478

Repress! Here it's difficult not to run out of superlatives, as this sole album of a bunch of relative unknowns beats almost everything in the UK progressive field. Side one is a sheer delight with natural, yet deeply moving melodies over a background of lavish but tasteful mellotron, supported by an able rhythm section, in which the drummer employs uncommon military rhythms in an in obtrusive but very effective way. The vocals are extremely personal but never self-indulgent. These are a blissful 15 minutes. Side two doesn't reach quite such a high standard, but is still very enjoyable and never less than good. This album could defend the right to exist for the whole genre. Most strongly recommended

LEAF HOUND - GROWERS OF MUSHROOM (IT)

Reissue of 1971 album. Although a five-piece, there's a lean, muscular feeling to tracks like 'Work My Body' that contrasts nicely with the all-out aural assault of 'Fiend'. In terms dynamics, Leaf Hound clearly knew the range of amplifier settings between 0 and 10 and were ... read more »

Repress. Black Widow's eponymous second album was a conscious attempt on the band's part to scale back the satanic trappings that had dominated its debut, and, in the process, redirect the media's focus away from the controversy and onto the group's music. On the heels of ... read more »
