- Edited 11 years agoThe only Dutch signing to release an album on swirl Vertigo and an extremely rare record. This is clearly the brainchild of the otherwise unknown Ruud Wouterson, who wrote all the material. There is massive influence of Focus (2), which is underlined by some wordless vocals and prominent flute parts. The first two tracks are modestly respectable progressive rock played in pastel shades. The album really takes off with the long Apocalyps, a more inventive piece of prog-rock, although the end of times surely will be more dramatic than this friendly bit of music, we guess. The madman doesn't live up to its title at all. The side-long title track on side B is better than all that went before. The band plays more concise, sharper, and the melodies are better. Again the ghost of Focus hovers above much of the sound. This is surely a creditable album, though.
Another mirrored photograph presents the lads on the front cover with the obligatory denim plus hair. The starkness of the surroundings just about saves the image from banality. The backcover shows a superb 18th century Orion, complete with hunting dog and cudgel, all made out of tinplate and the recording information, too.
The lettering maybe a bit rigid, but functions well in its context.
