Gracious

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Gracious - Gracious Gracious
Psych New - LP ST 602 Capitol
Sealed Stereo Original. Pristine Copy. "Hard On The Heels Of King Crimson, The Debut Of Gracious! Begins With The Blandly But Accurately Titled "Introduction." One Of The Album's Strongest Tracks, It's A Nice-Like Combination Of Menacing Moog Breaks And Shimmering Harpsichords, And It Foreshadows The Band's Use Of Both Heavy Prog Music And Ghostly Lyrics Tinged With Catholic Dread. "Heaven" Is A Gorgeous Minor-Key Ballad Of Stately Mellotron And Chiming Guitar Tones, With Harmonies Reminiscent Of Late-Model Zombies. "Hell," Not Surprisingly, Is Another Thing Altogether: A Descent Into Drunken Declamations, Clinking Bottles, Rowdy Bar Sounds, Loopy Piano Riffs, And Creepy Phasing Effects. From Here, The Album Settles Down A Bit: "Fugue In D Minor" Is A Straightforward Chamber Orchestra Piece, And The "Dream" Ends The Album With Meandering Jamming And Overblown Monologues. Still, It's A Fine Debut, And It Presaged The Superb Second Effort That Was To Follow." Paul Collins, All Music Guide.... more details
