Catalog no.: AK0000229

Item ID: 216020

Repress. Simply put, 'Asylum' may be the best album to come out of that school of early British symph also comprised of the likes of Gracious!, Fantasy and Spring. This is an album whose atmosphere will have a slow but sure effect on the listener. Most of the tracks are short melodic ditties that definitely stick in your head, except for 'Munich' which allows the band some free-reign jamming, and the epic centerpiece 'Let Them Come When They Will', during which the band experiments with a number of dynamics and some phenomenal melodic themes over a 12-minute stretch. Overall, this is a flawless album of subtle beauty and understated grace. Definitely a classic. Original pasted gatefold U.S. hardboard sleeve.
