Specialists/collaborators reviews

Sinkadotentree
There is no questioning the talent of this trio with Vincent Crane on keyboards, John Du Cann on guitar and Paul Hammond on drums. In fact listening to each of these guys individually on this record leaves me very impressed. It's just never been an album that's blown me away like it does most. What BLACK SABBATH was doing at this time was much more powerful and i guess it's just my taste in that i much more enjoy guitar driven music to organ driven tunes. Still there's lots to like here and it has grown on me. The title track is quite haunting with the dark piano lines and eerie guitar expressions, but that's where the haunting music ends. Certainly fans of DEEP PURPLE and the like will rate this one highly.

Vincent Crane had to rebuild his band from scratch since the debut, but in doing so he picked up the guitar talents of John Du Cann, whose arrival crystallises the band's sound on this second album. Whereas Crane's songwriting dominated the debut, this time around Crane and Du Cann share compositional duties more or less evenly, and between the pair of them they are able to carve out a distinctive and novel sound for the band.

The trio takes the dark and brooding themes unleashed that year by Black Sabbath, speeds the playing up, and enhances Du Cann's volcanic guitar playing with Crane's organ backing. The result is a fusion of prog-flavoured hard rock and proto-metal, with some doom metal spice (especially on the title track). Although the closing track is weak in points (it does sometimes turn into a showcase for Crane's organ solos), otherwise the album is solid from beginning to end. If Black Sabbath's two 1970 albums formed the blueprint for doom metal, this album has to be one of the foundational documents of more traditional metal (I particularly hear its influence in New Wave of British Heavy Metal acts of the late 1970s). Possibly the band's finest work.
