This team have been working in schools, churches and prison for the last two years and now followup their 1991 album 'Average Man'. Their biog states their influence as "classical rock but also includes other tastes such as worship music and jazz". Eagles Wings certainly demonstrate plenty of eclecticism in their stylings though a certain Wakemanesque pomp rock feel dominates. Weaknesses are poor sound quality, badly under mixed vocals and one or two poor lead vocals but there is a certain musical intelligence and lyrical adventurousness. "The Pearl" has as much drama content as a musical work which keeps me returning to the tape. Despite its deficiencies 'King Of The Sky' demonstrates that progressive rock lives on in deepest Worcestershire.
