Atomic Rooster - In Hearing of Atomic Rooster (1971)


The third album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, woodwinds and vocals.

The band continued on again. A band I find it hard to pinpoint.

This forty-one minutes long album gives me another challenge. 

Take hard prog, add some soul, add blues and add psych rock. Atomic Rooster has taken those genres and make a brew out of them.

There is even some minutes of pastoral music here.

The vocals is really good and ditto for the instruments. 

The best things about this album is the many details. It is lacking a bit in good melodies and it comes across as a bit half  baked at times. The woodwinds also feels alien to most of the album.

Nevertheless, this is a decent to good album well worth checking out.

2.5 points
