Comus ''To Keep From Crying'' (UK Prog-Folk 1974)

This is very good progressive folk music. Well, there are lots of acoustic instruments involved: acoustic guitars, bassoon, saxophone and tons of xylophone among others. The tracks are quite loaded, and the main attraction is this highly pitched childish & fragile female lead vocals: one can easily fall under its charm: very addictive indeed! There are not tons of keyboards, but they are at the right place at the right time. The bass is definitely not timid. There are couples of psychedelic parts which IMO remove some worthiness to this record, but compared to their "First utterance" album, this record is quite more down to earth and less strange.

1. Down (Like a Movie Star)
2. Touch Down
3. Waves and Caves
4. Figure in Your Dreams
5. Children of the Universe
6. So Long Supernova
7. Perpetual Motion
8. Panophany
9. Get Yourself a Man
10. To Keep from Crying
11. After the Dream

I've been listening to the first Comus album, and this is a bit more commercial ... or at least less murderous! Thanks.

Personally, i dont really like this album very much. The first one of them, First Utterance, its amazing, but in this one i feel like a more pop band.
