Fantasy's second album which sadly never really saw the light of day is nothing short of a superb recording. Fantasy blend highly melodic themes with great tempo changes and superb musicianship. They play music inspired with loads of analog keyboards (aka Genesis) and even the odd sprinkle of the ol' mellotron. Vocals are charismatic with lyrics drawing heavily on fantasy-like themes and imagery. Their music is probably best described as somewhere in the middle of the road between Genesis and Yes.
It would be a mistake to discuss this album and fail to mention the superb guitar playing throughout, which is much more accentuated than on their debut album. Thanks to the fine folks at Audio Archives for not only doing an excellent job in carefully remastering and repackaging this lost gem but including the 5 bonus tracks (3 old 1970 tracks and 2 demo versions).
