Lady Lake - No Pictures (1977)

The debut album from this Dutch band.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and percussion.

Two guest musicians provided drums and vocals.

The band has taken their name from the famous Gnidrolog album Lady Lake. Something they admit. 

The music is much more symphonic prog, though. 

The first part of the album, a forty-one minutes long album, is pretty good symphonic prog. Good symphonic prog in the vein of Camel and Genesis. 

The band has indeed stolen some themes from Genesis and that is very noticeable. 

The last half has some vocals. It still follows the Camel theme but it is less good and some of the music here leaves me a bit cold.

This album is an album in two halves. One good and one decent. 

Hence the verdict and split points.

2.5 points
