Ultimately, you get a package full of great vocals and melodies, with an interesting mix of music. Fans of symphonic progressive music should really take to this one. Listen without predjudice and you will hear a terrific set of songs with a strong melodic base, great vocals, superb musicianship and production. In reading about this band in the liner notes, the formidable skills of Alan Parsons were brought in and got the record nominated for a Grammy in the engineering category.

This is one of the greatest album debuts of all time. All the songs are great. Alan Parsons is in top form mixing this one. The songs Drink of Water, Mama Frog, Make US All Aware, Time Waits For No One, and Nice Nice Very Nice are all Prog Rock Classics.

From: Hrudet Date: May 1, 2004 at 14:54
The group displays a mature sound, and awesome instrumental skills that rival those of any of the best progressive rock bands of the day. Whether exploring territory similar to that of Yes, or the Italian sound, ala Banco, displaying their home-grown influences, including vocal kinship with The Beach Boys, and Todd Rundgren, instrumental resemblances to Chicago and Blood, Sweat And Tears.

From: Vikki Roxx Date: February 6, 2006 at 8:35
Well, this sounds far newer than 1975 (or even 1974 as some sources claim). Good for the band

From: ROBERT Date: February 6, 2006 at 11:58
Bandas como esta, DAKOTA, PLAYER, Desmond Child And Rouge, Stingray, Eddie Money, The Babys,trillion, Reo, Styx, ... etc d puro A.O.R. con tintes WEST/COAST, fueron los verdaderos pilares en los q se apoyo lo q seria: A.O.R. d verdad. Aor Basico y Primigenio del Bueno d Verdad!!

A Pomp AOR debut...a band that nowadays can be easily considerated d as a "cult" one... tracks # 3(nice),4( 🙂 ),7 & 9(nice) are the ones on my list.82/100

From: gfranciscop Date: July 7, 2021 at 18:39
Progressive (they even have Alan Parsons here) infused Folk-Rock with Beatles' influences (well, who wasn't influenced by them really). Extremely clean sound, as most 70s music. The orchestral and string arrangements are also really well mixed. The piano led songs feel extremely deep. Too Progressive 70s for my personal taste. The absolute trippy Progressive moment with Mama Frog (I liked it, but I wouldn't put it into an AOR playlist ofc). The mixing and mastering are of top notch quality; definitely audio enthusiasts territory. In the end I can't remember much of it, but it's because it's not my style. Rating: 7/10. Favorite Track: Mama Frog.
