5.0 out of 5 stars Undeservedly obscure prog/folk rock classic February 26, 2001
By AndyC
Format:Audio CD
This was the second album that Gnidrolog cut in 1972, just before going their various ways. Folky in part, jazzy in part, with lots of woodwind from recorder to saxophone, but NO Hammond organ or mellotron, the overall sound is of a quirky, intelligent, blackly humorous denizen of the abyss that lies between Steeleye Span or Jethro Tull and King Crimson or Van Der Graaf Generator. The opener, "Soldier", oscillates between prettily lyrical and rampagingly angry, and is a great anti-war anthem. The rest of the album ranges from almost poppy ("Same Dreams") to spooky ("Lady Lake") to elegiac ("Dog") to the boisterous "Social Embarrassment". Due to the Goldring twins' discovering continued interest in the band on the WWW, they reformed in 1999 and recorded a new album "Gnosis", as well as re-releasing the back catalogue including 'Lady Lake". A real gem that deserves a wider audience. NB: gorgeous cover by Bruce Pennington.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I don't know anything about this group. I bought this album on impulse in a disc-shop in Stockholm, mostly because of the cover and the little bit of tape on it that read 'super english prog'..and I'm glad I did. This album rocks! The first track 'I could never be a soldier' is reason enough to buy it.

Despite Gnidrolog's very sweet approach, I really like their second album, Lady Lake.
The easy description of this music is that Gnidrolog sounds like the Wishbone Ash guys singing over (a particularly harmonious and restrained) King Crimson.
Although the vocals are a bit too playful at times--the refrain in Ship is pure pop--and some of the final sections of their songs could use more compelling development rather than merely repetition with sound effects (Social Embarrassment), the songwriting is solid, and the album is loaded with infectious horn parts that have a lot of swagger and clever surprises (such as the disjunct vocals melodies in the verses of Social Embarrassment).
I tend to prefer much heavier or more symphonic stuff than the type of progressive rock these guys play, so my ability to enjoy this album so much reflects well upon their craft and art.
..and am I the only one who thinks that the swan on the cover is calling for a "time out" ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Hello ladies, want to get wet? April 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Do you like Gold?
Do you like Rings?
Do you like Pseudo Anagrams?
Are you a conscientious objector?
Do you like Multi instrumentalists?
Do you like Gentle Giant?
Do you like Jethro Tull?
Do you like Wishbone Ash?
Do you like Folky Prog?
Are you a bit Wet?

Then this is for you!
Perhaps one of the lesser known Prog classics, probably because it's not quite classic, but if you like the idea of jazzy/folky prog with hints of the bands mentioned in my opening ramble then this will surely float your boat - just look out for giant hands won't you!

BUY!
