Gravy train staircase to the day


The group gathered a considerable following among British Progressive Rock audiences with incendiary live performances, along the way recording the debut Gravy Train (1970) and its follow-up Ballad of a Peaceful Man on Vertigo, while a switch to Dawn Records yielded two further albums in Second Birth in 1973 and Staircase to the Day .

Listenability : 2/5 . Hooklines are present, but there's way too much monotonousness and stuff like that.
Resonance : 1/5 . Nah. When they DO try to capture my emotions, I'd prefer 'em not to do that.
Originality : 1/5 . Only because of the debut album which has an interesting and pretty unique synthesis of styles.
Adequacy : 2/5 . They were WAY too overblown not to mention it.
Diversity : 1/5 . Only because of the debut album which sounds unlike the following three... these guys had a steady workin' formula.
Overall : = E on the rating scale.
