Tamarisk's - Breaking The Chains

7

OVERALL

7.0/10

This long lost music of Tamarisk was orginally released on cassette and cd in the early 80’s. All of Tamarisk’s tracks remastered from original quarter inch tapes.

This cd comes with Four newly recorded songs from Tamarisk’s 1984 live set, A 16 page booklet telling the story of Tamarisk, The lyrics to all 11 songs.

It is great that in the early 80’s that they were making Progressive Rock in the face of the current trends of the era. Here is the thing it does sound dated to me, I mean it is 40 years old. So I think if you go in knowing you will like this album.

Andy Grant vocals are guitar work is great to but maybe to high in the mix which does sound a bit muddy. I Still think that this is an album for fans for Marrillion, Fish or Pendragon.

Its a shame to think what could have been but the band did break up in 1984
