You Know The Way 5. Vivid Shady Lady 6. Seasons 8. Love Quiver 9. Mechanical Lover Hazy Paradise Memories Invitation Lost Forever Thanks For The Love Hazy Paradise Single B-side Mechanical Lover Single B-side Reseved for confirmed fans who have the next two albums. So this album ended up having two songs with original drummer Cees Kalis, and the rest with new drummer Ton van der Kleij.
Inthis album received a UK release on the Nepentha label, which features the Roger Dean cover that's been used on the German Repertoire CD Hazy Paradise - Earth And Fire - Earth And Fire as well as the Japanese reissue. This album is less polished than the albums to follow "Song of the Marching Children", "Atlantis"the Mellotron hadn't even yet appeared although I suspected a Black Cotton - 2Pac - Ghetto Gospel - The Birth Of A Legend synthesizers was used near the end of "Twilight Dreamer"and there's more of a late '60s psych feel.
The album opens up with "Wild and Exciting", which became a hit for them in their home country. It's obvious that these guys need to brush on their English, but regardless, it's a pleasant piece, especially after the aggressiveness of "Love Quiver" which preceeded it. It's understood that "Song of the Marching Children" and "Atlantis" shows the band at their best I can't argue with thatthis debut album is still excellent with promise of more great things to come.
This album has not aged very well, I'm afraid. There is no need Hazy Paradise - Earth And Fire - Earth And Fire the casual fan to grab this one although a song like "21st Century Show" indicates already the direction that they will pursue a little later more complex structure, nice flute while "Seasons" reminds me "Never Marry A Railroad Man" from "Shocking Blue" their fellow countrymen, woman which was also released in Each remastered version features a hell of good bonus tracks.
Five songs or so being present on each version. Two stars. There are no notable elements of symphonic prog, but still these songs have luring ideas enough to avoid falling into non-prog rock'n'roll category. Of course there are some tracks that are rather poor, but there are Hazy Paradise - Earth And Fire - Earth And Fire that are good. In fact they sound better and better with each listening, even though the first impression may have been less than remarkable. What I like here is the sort of "dated" sound.
I'm not meaning bad production it's pretty good actuallybut the overall feeling, call it hazy if you like. You can tell without a doubt this music comes from the fruitful era of ''72, and being European instead of American or British gives some extra to it all. But I'll definitely be checking out Atlantis, their 3rd LP.
