Beast - Beast (1969 us, fantastic psych jazz rock, 2010 edition)



Beast's debut album is a crossline between psych and brass rock. The band offers great moments, some cool jazz rock and relaxed psychedelia, with intense glimpses of progressive rock. There are also moments when the band goes through creative experimental fields, looking for their identity in the musical whirlwind of the late 60's. Although the album has different influences, it manage to stand at a high level, creating the foundations for their great forthcoming second release.
