Item ID: 316713

This "previously unreleased" album from 1974 rounds off the World In Sound trilogy of Cleveland's most celebrated '70s "art-psychedelic" rock groups. It's Dragonwyck's most professional piece of music and truly decent pioneering in combining '60s psych compositions, tape looping, and mid-'70s symphonic theatrical art-rock: "Fun is what the name implies; hard work, a lot of sweat... orchestrated rock that is orchestrated without an orchestra"... sure they were inspired by the conceptions of giants, like Genesis, Gentle Giant or Yes and express a few Bowie-flashes, but it sounds like a unique collage of detailed studiowork. Compared to the time when it was recorded it's extremely innovatively produced and became a great artistic statement with finally 10 original cuts (plus 2 bonustracks). Includes 8 page color booklet. You'll hear prog-psych flashes and crazy symphonic perversions with weird vocals/voices, powerful guitars, violin and lots of keyboards. While the first album was minimalistic dark/heavy and strong Doors influenced, the second created more "British Invasion" flashes a la Moody Blues or King Crimson, to make this third album the most variative and unexpected one. The garage-psych-freak should get his satisfaction by album no. 1, but this one's a must have album for open minded '70s music fans who love to get excited by surprisingly different moods in rock music.
