Ground-breaking album by the original Nirvana
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Whenb one thinks of "Nirvana", images of Seattle and grease often come to mind. However, the orginal Nirvana were a wonderful mix of pop, rock, psychedelia, jazz, and classical, all rolled into a thoroughly enjoyable whole. "Simon Simopath", was their 1967 debut, and tld the musical story of a bizarre futuristic young man, who travels through space, and ultimately falls in love. Along the way, there are some timeless gems, such as "We Can Help You", "Satellite Jockey", and the immortal "Pentecost Hotel". Messrs Campbell-Lyons and Spyropoulos, had in fact, inevented the concept album. Thirty years on, and this album still retains its "cult" status, which is a lot more than you'll be able to say about a ceratin greasy-haired band from the Northwest in a score's time."
