      Disadvantages

      Colourful album cover, dull album

      If there's one thing that will draw you in to buying an Andwella's Dream album, it will probably be the colourful album cover, if it's the LP version you've dug up at a car boot sale, then you'll be in for a treat when you find out it's real value.

      Andwella's Dream are a psychedelic band often hailed a "gem" by record buffs, that might be just because they are from Northern Ireland in a style of music that doesn't have that many from the Emerald isle.

      They are not really to my liking at all and differ heavily from the bands they are usually lumped with, the singer seems to be a big Clapton fan, they even cover "Cocaine" which is rather poor if you ask me, the band play in a mellow way but it just makes them sound sloppy. Unfortunately frontman Dave Lewis doesn't even come close to Clapton (and I'm not even really a Clapton fan!)

      Andwella's Dream tend to have gospel type backing vocals on some tracks, they didn't garner much attention back in the 60s and I can see why, they may have a few loyal fans but to the newcomer, it seems that they don't come close to a lot of "unknown gems"

      The band have a couple of nice guitar solos but they desperately lack catchiness, the Arabian sounding flute playing at the first couple of minutes of "Found A Number, Lost A King" seems to serve little purpose and just gives off an air of arty pretentiousness.

      Far too long-winded and gentle for the average psych/garage fan and not weird enough for a lot of prog fans, I can't really see anyone enjoying this band unless they were in it or have seriously obscure tastes.
