Tetelestai (’82)(Tetelestai Inc 212055) 1982
Good night, how many times are these guys gonna record this thing? Here we have yet another interpretation of the same musical, produced by the same fellowship. There are many new songs here, while several others are missing. The jazz and progressive influences are still strongly felt, making it most similar to the 1979 version, although the arrangements on the duplicated songs are significantly different (for example, ‘Repent’ gets a fuzz guitar solo here). Effective use of synthesizers, somewhat Styx-ish on the opening ‘Prophets’, giving a stately art-rock tone to ‘Resurrection’. Crunchy electric guitar and haunting choral backing make ‘Song Of The Cross’ a standout. Different sleeve art as well. Looks like you’re gonna need all three of these. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
Thanks to Joe from Electric Psalms for this one.
