Dragon — Scented Gardens for the Blind
(TRC 045, 1976/1994, CD)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 1995-07-01
This reissue is probably shaky in the legitimacy area, getting hard to find, and has a "Japanese" price tag on it. It is also transcribed from vinyl but it's a good job and chances are you're not going to be running across an original any time soon. Like the Ragnarok Nooks review, this is the New Zealand group's (not to be confused with the Belgian or other namesakes) second album and is a symphonic rock album of very good quality. All of the same comparisons in the Nooks review apply here, as Dragon have a very British 70s feel. The music is basically a fairly straightforward rock (couple of "singles" on this album) with organs and guitars. The longer tracks stand out, especially "Sunburst" with its excellent melodies and spacey feel. A really nice album and accessible enough for anyone into symphonic rock.
