Second effort by original Lucifer's Friend. Even if, from first track, you think to listen to the same good old LF's hard rock (Hobo- Prince of darkness). In reality, on this album, Lucifer's Friend pushes their sound more in progressive rock direction than in their first "Lucifer's friend" (Rose on the vine, Mother and the fantastic Summerdream, with many change of times and contrasts). So guitar riffs and organ are present, but also one piano, that in some songs is prominent on other struments.
I love this classic album, for me one of the better in the LF career
P.S.. i know that the LF's discography is present in many blogs, but i think that, for the presence of mister John Lawton, their albums must be here too.
