Comments:

This is a very nice and varied record. The band go though many different styles and appear to be at home in all of them. The tracks Grace Hearn sings on are elevated by her uniquely spirited delivery. The other singers also bring something special to the table. A very intriguing listen all told. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)

Comments:

Twenty tracks, the first thirteen of which have never been released and were recorded between 1983 and 2000. The last seven are listed as bonus tracks and were originally released on the OHO, Up and Oriency Anthology albums. Very prog though with a variety of intermingling styles. A very interesting listen for anyone interested in the progress of progressive pop/rock. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
