In One Era
CYCLOPS' Twelfth Night reissue program continues with their piece de resistance "Fact and Fiction". Now acknowledged as a Progressive Rock classic, this 1982 release has certainly stood the test of time.
Innovative songs mixed with instrumental virtuosity and biting satirical lyrics, sung by the late great Geoff Mann. Classic songs "We Are Sane", "Human Being", "Creepshow" and the end of concert singalong "Love Song" are still as inventive as when first released. The new remastering brings out subtle textures and sound effects buried in the original vinyl/CD release.
Only previously available as an expensive import this reissue has been remastered and also has an additional seven bonus tracks. These include the vinyl single "Eleanor Rigby"/"East of Eden", which was originally left off the album due to time constraints, plus five other remastered tracks making their first public appearance.
The original artwork is supplemented by the addition of previously unseen photos and an essay on the albums history by drummer Brian Devoil.
A must have package for those interested in classic progressive rock albums.
