'First Utterance' is the debut-album of the progressive English folk band Comus. Originally released in 1971, the album was notable for its unique blend of progressive rock, folk, psychedelia, and elements of paganism and the macabre. The overall thematic tone of the album is of vulnerable innocence facing abusive power, the songs dealing with violence ('Drip Drip'), rape ('Diana', 'Song To Comus'), and insulin shock therapy ('The Prisoner'). These themes contrast starkly with the acoustic sound of the record, featuring acoustic guitar, violin, flute, and lyrical, almost Arcadian, female harmonies. Includes 4 bonus tracks.

Also available: FIRST UTTERANCE (2LP/IT) (LP), FIRST UTTERANCE (NL) (LP).
