Cressida Asylum Japanese CD album (CDLP)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: Cressida's Asylum is a fantastic example of early British symphonic Progressive Rock. It marries catchy Paul McCartney-esque vocals with adventurous instrumental sections. Superb vocal melodies regarded as some of the best from the Prog era coupled with charmingly naive lyrics

The instrumental sections have its origins in the style typical of early seventies Prog Rock with the music driven by a dirty & mellow Hammond organ with classic piano, bass, guitar & drums. At times this sound was augmented with a small orchestra with violins, cellos, trumpets & timpani.
The first side of the album has a theme based on its title with the second side featuring a couple of short filler tracks ending with a triumphant epic.
Widely regarded as the best album to come out of that school of early British symphonic Prog. This is beautiful, melancholic and mostly mellow & atmospheric. There is quite simply a British charm that blends its morose charm with lovely orchestral Mellotron sounds that appear throughout the album.
If three words could describe this album then they would graceful, sublime & classic.
