This band contained tight epic instrumentation with the somewhat dreamy and fantasylyrics/singing of Terry Luttrell. Their singer has a Jon ANDERSON-like kind of voice, the vocal perfection beloved by Americanbands and an instrumental sophistication. The music was original in terms of composition lyrics and performance.

They released four studio albums between 1976 and 1978. Their first two albums for Epic, "Starcastle" and "Fountains ofLight",are archetypes of the symphonic sound; utopian, grand, sweeping, intricate, complex and melodic. On "Real" &"Fountains", theband changes its orientation and goes towards a direct soft rock with some YES-like vocals. "Chronos I" is agreat archive workas well as some really good alternative versions to their known work.
