Prog Archives review: “Oh dear. I’ve been listening to progressive rock for more than 15 years and I was wondering if there were some hidden gems… and I’ve found one ! Thanks to Progarchives ! Catapilla’s first and second (review coming) are definitely classics and might I say “masterpieces” ? I haven’t given many 5 stars but this album deserves it.
Such creativity and energy in the longer tracks. I found the music to have the same feeling or driving force as King Crimson had in the 70s. Goodness ! I had not heard so much passion in music for a long time ! Don’t mind the date of issue (1971). If you like progressive rock with a touch of blues, fusion and sometimes psychedelic singing and jamming, not to mention the superb playing… Get this album !”
