Valentyne Suite" is Colosseum's second album, which in some ways shows an improvement on their impressive debut. The artistic relevance of this piece for the germination of prog rock can easily be accurately regarded as equal to that of the Nice's 'Ars Longa, Vita Brevis', Pink Floyd's 'Interstellar Overdrive', and King Crimson's '21st Century Schizoid Man'. However, as much as the suite is the absolute highlight to this album, we must not overlook the remaining repertoire.

Album · 1969 · 7 Songs. Chapter 3: Parasomnia.

Greenslade proves to be a largely unsung hero, his only real solo in the suite something to offer a challenge to vintage Keith Emerson, but with swing. As to criticism, bassist Tony Reeves has very little flow to his playing, which severely hampers a rhythm section that needs to be loose-limbed, and Litherland 's guitar playing is formulaic, which can be fine for rock, but once outside the most straightforward parameters, he seems lost.
