Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Appearing "Medicine Man"
The band's growing confidence is apparent on this their third album. "Ursula", "Medicine Man", and "Someone there you know" all bear the hallmarks of a band at ease with itself, while developing its own hallmark sound.
Depuis quelques temps, Thomas fait des rêves atroces. D'épouvantables rêves qui le réveillent en sursaut et morcellent son sommeil qu'il a déjà fragile. Si ce n'était que ça…
Essential: A masterpiece of prog rock music.
How to describe Renaissance for those who haven't listened them yet? Well the best way is giving them a copy of Live at the Carnegie Hall, because some bands are better on stage, others are worst, but Renaissance is just as good in both situations.
All the tracks are perfectly selected, almost as if this album was the best of Renaissance, they maintain the same spirit and atmosphere than in their original versions with the addition to listen the reaction of the audience.
Not many bands can honestly say they changed the shape of rock & roll as we know it and upended part of the larger global culture at the same time. The Ramones did just that; by stripping down and speeding up rock & roll like a hot rod that could outrun all competition, and injecting it with a massive dose of snotty, absurdist humor, they gave the music a new lease on life, and left behind a handful of brilliant recordings that are still a solid kick to hear nearly four decades after their debut hit the streets. Punk rock first emerged from a very specific time and place, but the best of it is timeless in its joyous roar, and the first four Ramones albums absolutely live up to that description.
