A collection of songs from the band’s early period as a three-piece (’84 – ’87). The only member from the current line-up present here is frontman Cyrus accompanied by Gordon Feenie (drums/flute/keys) and Tim Taylor (guitar). Without prominent keys the music is more rhythmic than melodic yet is still easily recognisable as Citizen Cain.
The band’s early sound was inspired by the more obscure prog greats such as Gentle Giant and PFM although the influences that also inspired the later line-ups of the band (Rush, Genesis, Yes etc.) still play a big part in providing the basis of the band’s sound in it’s infancy. It is a unique sound that would go on to set the foundations that later incarnations of Citizen Cain built upon.
