Blood Red Sun - Gracious - Gracious ! /  This Is . . . Gracious !! (CD, Album, Album)

 · No sophomore jinx here: on their second album, Gracious truly hits its stride. The first half of the album is a four-part suite, "Super Nova." After its Floydian opening instrumental, the band launches into the bleak "Blood Red Sun"; with a dystopic narrative of environmental holocaust and its martial drumbeat, it's an ideal complement to King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man." Strange /10(29).

This album is kind of a mixed bag, sometimes sounding like King Crimson, sometimes like the Moody Blues, sometimes like a blues-rock band. Gracious! did some of these things well, some not. Singer Paul Davis had a histrionic style with takes some getting used to. He reminds me of the singer of Rare Bird/5.

Gracious! was originally released in This Is Gracious!! was originally released in Disc 1 tracks published by Norrie Paramour Music Ltd; Disc 2 tracks published by Daisy Music Ltd ℗/71 Mercury Records Ltd (London).

This compilation that was released in contains both GRACIOUS! and THIS IS GRACIOUS! Each album is on one disc so in effect it is basically two albums in just one jewel case. I'm not keen on reviewing these types of compilations unless I have something relevant to express/5.
