Along with the Outsiders, Q65 was one of Holland's top groups. Revival was their second lp released in 1968/1969.
Revival opened with "Cry In The Night". This was one of the Q's greatest punk rockers, a pulverizing monster that stood out for it's vicious, out of control guitar breaks and Bieler's deranged vocals. "So High I've Been, So Down I Must Fall" is excellent but more in an acid punk style. The album's variety could be considered it's strength. One track, "World of Birds" covers the exotic folk-rock spectrum and is notable for some fine psychedelic guitar work while "It Came To Me" is fast and furious blues-rock.
While Revival may not be a cohesive listen, this is because many of the tracks were recorded during different periods within the group's lifespan. During their heyday Q65 were one of the best rock groups around.
