Iron Butterfly - Scorching Beauty (1975)
The fifth album from this US band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
Jon Andersen from Yes guests on one song.
The output from this band had been not the best, with the exception from their second album In Gadda.... which is a good album.
The band had taken a five years long break and released two albums before they gave up the ghost. This is the first of these two albums.
The band has returned with a mix of prog, reggae, hard rock, pub rock, indie rock and a mix of numerous other genres....including krautrock.
The vocals are pretty horrible and the musicians is on that level too.
The songs are abysmal. The sound is not good.
There is nothing to like on this album. It is a turkey and it is best avoided.
