Here is the major statement from Iron Butterfly, one of the original ‘on acid’ rock bands. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is their second album, and it’s side-long title track is so famous it’s been referenced in The Simpsons. This heavy psychedelic album is pressed to heavy psychedelic-coloured vinyl for this Rhino reissue.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 4th February 2018
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is literally a Jekyll and Hyde, while side 1 of the original LP was an inconsistent mixture of weak lyrical writing and good musical composition perfectly suited to the 60's mentality. However, on side 2 we get the bombastic, indulgent, epitome of excessive psychedelia: the title track in full 17+ minute regalia, a piece which really works for the lovers of psychedelic heavy rock and progressive long-form music that followed from Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, and ELP among others.
