Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1971 album housed in a digisleeve. Asylum, Cressida's second album for Vertigo, has eight extended Rock workouts such as `Asylum' and `Let Them Come When They Will'. Peter Jennings' keyboard playing enhances the lead vocals of Angus Cullen, backed by John Culley on lead guitar. With extra percussion and orchestral accompaniment, Cressida's sound has often been compared to their contemporaries, The Moody Blues. Repertoire. 2010.

Cressida was an amazing British band that only released 2 LPs. This is their 2nd. The music is most intriguing, filled with arrangements that are well-conceived. The instrumental prowess of these guys is stellar! They incorporate Progressive rock with Jazz/Folk influences. Vocally, they remind me of Caravan. Same with the wonderful instrumental work.

Cressida is a VERY pleasant band as far as creative easy-listening goes. They have a pleasant sound very similar to early King Crimson and Caravan, and yet they write songs that are actually *more* interesting than many of the more popular progressive rock artists. I think you'll be very surprised and delighted with this album. If you're looking for pretty and melodic arrangements in your progressive rock, check out these guys.
