Second Coming (AE 100) 1975?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Highly unusual acoustic rock custom with strange moody atmosphere thick with the sound of 12-stning guitar, minus any keyboards or percussion. This whole project seems shrouded in mystery and I have to admit I’m not quite sure where they’re coming from. No band member’s names or locations listed. Front cover drawing shows a guy peering through some sunflowers. Back cover shows three guys in a sunflower with a star of David on top and a cross with the letter G next to it. The music is outstanding: mostly slow and dreamy with a real cosmic quality to it. ‘Time To Clear Your Mind’ even borrows a melody from Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’. Lyrically, however, Harbinger can be quite battling. Lines like “have you been baptized in his name”, “if you only knew just what he went through because he loves you”, and passages from Psalm 23 seem ordinary enough. But how about “cosmic energy is coming right to me”, “maybe I’m not really my body”, or “accelerating one billion light years in a day you’ll find the more they say the less they know inside their mind”? Woah. Either some cerebral head-in—the—clouds creative rogues on the fringes of Christendom or something weird like Silva Mind Control. You decide. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
