Like most Korean 70s 'go go' albums this shows one of the more gifted psychedelic bands capable of showing skilful long jams. The longest track however is only 10 minutes and I think is just a leftover with great switches and themes of a much longer jam, showing only a glimpse how mighty this band could or must have been. Besides some nice organ, the slightly exotic multiple percussion shown on two tracks is really amazing. A really fine and recommended psych collector’s album. (I call the first track a great 60s "psych crooner).

Meetovermoscow : "The Key Brothers' melodramatic psych rock is a bastion of fuzzed out guitars, morose keyboards and the best of Korean wailing rock vocals I've heard thus far. A real musical masterpiece of drama, fuzzed out fun and the best 9-minute cover of 'Love Potion No. 9' you'll ever here. Listen to this when you're feeling the urge to either drop acid and cry about the love you lost, or when you're trying to cook fish. Either way, this album works."

PS. Note that Key Boys are a different band than Key Brothers! However, the leader of Key Brothers had been the member of the early Key Boys.
