Friday Music's 2012 release combines Ambrosia's first two albums -- their eponymous 1975 debut and its 1976 sequel Somewhere I've Never Travelled -- onto one set. These are Ambrosia's earliest albums and they are also their proggiest, slipping into extended jazzy instrumental sections and quoting Chopin pieces, but there are also hints of the soft slickness and melodic gifts that would give them yacht-rock hits a few years down the road, particularly on Somewhere I've Never Travelled, which finds the group slowly abandoning art for pop. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
