The lyrics written in English while as the music was characterized as British folk-rock reminding of Nick Drake , Gryphon, After Crying and Fairport Convention. The band decided to try and combine baroque reminiscence along with the original material. For that matter Dana Eizen, a baroque flute player came along. With Dana's arrival and her McDonalds like flute playing, the group established it's music as progressive rock in the early King Crimson spirit. The music material was rearranged and the band started recording it's debut album. The musical substance in the album Trench Art included along with the progressive basis classical music and jazz influences. The best references to compare the band are: Early King Crimson, Celeste, Lalo Schifrin, Gryphon, After Crying but Mr.Toad is not a clone but truly unique."
