(7/10) There is a certain chance/risk that you haven't heard about Horse before. This isn't because the band is a newcomer, it's actually the opposite. The band from South London started in the late 60's and as some more bands at that time, also Horse was into progressive hardrock that was occult influenced. Mixed with psychedelic elements the band belongs to one of the first ones touching this ground.
It's Rise Above Records who re-released the bands "For Twisted Minds Only" in a version that is based on a new mastering of the original tapes. But not enough that the longplayer 'only' comes with the songs that have been on the 1970 release. In addition to the original ten songs there are six more tunes on this re-issue CD that are previously unreleased ones - and the vinyl version comes with even more tracks.
In case you're interested in warm and organic 70's hardrock that comes with some great songs, you should consider this album as one you should at least check out. And no worries if you haven't heard of Horse before. The album comes with a 20 page booklet that dives deeper into the bands history.
You don't have to have a 'twisted mind' for enjoying "For Twisted Minds Only". Even if you have your head on straight this album brings good music to your home.
