Cosmos Factory -Black Hole[1976 Japan Space Prog Rock]

One of my Favourite Cosmos Factory album's.
Great prog-rock with guitar work wich reminds
me a bit of the King Crimson,this is probally their heaviest record(in my opinion ,i dont have Metal Reflection)
Fav. Tracks:Black Hole and Mirror Freak,but to be honest
everything is great

This is some pretty heavy stuff and I am almost certian one of the most innovative things coming out of asia as far as music is concerned..even by todays standards...and this was nearly 30 years ago. The music is drenched in organ and hard rockin' guitars with nice bass anchoring the music and keyboards adding a moody...almost sinister overtone in some areas. Black hole is the best track, especially the ending.

1. Black hole (8:41)
2. The vague image (1:14)
3. The hard image (3:51)
4. Crystal solitaire (3:47)
5. A wandering young man (8:56)
6. Days in the past (4:43)
7. Mirror freak (7:59)

Thanks heaps, I've been after this and 'A Journey With' for a long time!
By the way, is the title track of 'Black Hole' meant to end suddenly like that? Sounds like the very end is missing, but not sure... Thanks anyway, though!
