Cressida was an excellent British progressive rock band and authors of two memorable and still much sought-after LPs. Their second album, Asylum, was just as successful as their first, thanks to the captivating atmospheres and the technical ability of the musicians. Angus Cullen's pleasing vocal style is at times surprisingly folkie, while Peter Jennings unveils enviable talent and class, especially in certain jazz passages. Guitarist John Culley does the rest with clean guitar solos that never sound dated. The whole album is high-quality, but tracks like "Munich", "Lisa" and the eleven minute "Let Them Come When They Will" are some of the highlights.
