“The album’s two standout tracks, Munich… and Let Them Come When They Will, deserve to be hailed as classics within the symphonic prog genre and are undoubtedly the highest points of the band’s career“
Cressida’s second album on the Vertigo label, “Asylum” was recorded in the Summer of 1970 and released in February 1971, sadly, a few months after the band had split up.
