1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

815. Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus – Spirit

Original album is tracks 1-12

Brief Background: Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus was recorded during the middle of 1970 and released in November of the same year.

What I think:  I had never heard of these guys before, so I had no idea what to expect with this album. The album is sort of encased (tracks 1-5, tracks 10-12) by what I will describe as power-pop prog rock songs that are really catchy and interesting in a Raspberry’s meets King Crimson sort of way which I really found myself enjoying. The middle tracks were sort of strange psychedelia that weren’t really my thing, but weren’t awful either. In the end, I’m glad I am now familiar with the album though I probably wouldn’t listen to it again.


Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? I agree that it should be here. It has a certain something that makes it feel ageless.
