This is one of the better prog groups in recent years....and their Beatles ,Crimson & otherwise seventies inspiration is apparent. I have to say that is by far...SO MUCH seventies without being from the seventies than you´ll ever hear!! They hail from US but the records are released from the Swedish record company :Record heaven. By the looks of these guys they ARE from the seventies..and the music is a wonderful mix of Beatles vocals style and Crimson type music..with a little sting of their own..put in some fuzz guitar and other lovely gizmo´s..there you have it!!!Listening to this wonderful record .I feel like I am back in the seventies (now for you..the younger readers this doesnt apply!) Its all here... the heavy guitars..the mellotron...the harsh vocals..the beautiful vocals the chords a la seventies..the arrangements....whoooaaaaa !!! As this is the 10 track version..id like to mention the wonderful cover version of Pretty things´ : "Baron Saturday" from their (Pretty things) fantastic album... "S.F. Sorrow"..which by the way is a must have!!! Now back to BIG ELF.....if you (like me)love seventies prog / psych this is an absolute MUST OWN!!! There´s no waiting....go get it...NOW!!!! - Tonny Larsen (ProgPlanet.com)
