Colosseum

'Daughter Of Time'

Vertigo, UK, 1970

VO 6360017

ANOTHER SLICE of impressive period progressive jazz rock from the giants of that scene. The riffs are super heavy, very tight and the playing is beyond impressive - totally mindblowing actually. Contains wonderfully arranged long tracks that take you on a journey to the sort of places that you never quite come back from.

This was Colosseum's second album for the newly inaugerated Vertigo progressive rock label who set a standard with this act that was tough to top yet brilliantly placed to capitalise on the burgeoning interest in jazz rock.

Clearly the band meant business as all the tracks harness a degree of intensity but tracks like 'Time Lament', 'Downhill And Shadows' and side two's colossal 'The Time Machine' (recorded live) are prog nirvana itself. In all cases the riffs and themes kick hard and take no prisoners. Special mention also must go to their version of Mountain's 'Theme For An Imaginary Western' which is at once both sublime and crushing!

Like their debut Vertigo album this is one of the greatest prog rock albums of all time. Don't miss out.
