Between The Universes 2. Mars Detection 3. Suburban Day Suite 1. The Day Awakes 2. The Day Works 3. The Day Rests Total Time: There's quite a bit of electronic wizardry here or doodling, depending on your perspectiveparticularly on the spacey and appropriately titled "Mars Detection" and the three-part "the Day". This was released at the height of the synthesizer-heavy part of the seventies, especially it seems with Mars Detection - Tritonus - Between The Universes bands, and these guys were no exception.
The keyboards are quite varied and prominent throughout, although some of it is plainly obviously in its source, especially several note-for-note lifts from Pink Floyd and ELP. Some of the vocals also sound a bit like early Moody Blues, or maybe the Nice. So no prizes for originality, or for lyrical skills either, since most of the vocals are of the slightly psychedelic and theatrical style that so many bands tried to adopt shortly after their respective songwriters hit puberty and heard Sgt.
Pepper's for the first time. Plenty of slightly hollow two and three part harmonies lumbering on about peace and love, or space aliens, or something. Not really sure and the liner notes aren't much help either. And speaking of vocals, the opening title track has some really Mars Detection - Tritonus - Between The Universes ones, with Harrison delivering a moody tenor, while someone else Seiler, I guess steps all over him with a slightly off-key vocal track of his own that sounds a bit like a couple of stoners trying to do harmonies but of different songs.
It's actually a bit amusing. Nothing much else to say about this album, except maybe that I read it was re-released on CD with bonus tracks.
I'm glad so many older albums are finding their way onto CD these days, but am also constantly amazed that some of these labels are bothering since its unlikely they even broke even Aman - Burak Kut - Benimle Oynama - Çılgınım this one. So not particularly recommended, and really just for collectors of Stazione Sud (Western Blues) - Carlo Alberto Rossi, Enzo Ceragioli, Franco Monaldi, Renato Sellani, symphonic rock although this album isn't nearly as symphonic as their first.
So another 2. So three stars, but just barely. To me, not a high priority band, if you can get it on the cheap, then do so, but paying full price for an original LP might be a bit much they don't come cheap.
