4 stars The Belgian grouip The Wrong Object has existed in seven years and this is their fourth record. They play a powerful and interesting jazz rock and the band has the members Michel Delville(guitar, roland GR-09), Antoine Guenet(keyboards, vocals), Marti Melia(saxophones, clarinet), Francois Lourtie(saxophone, voice), Pierre Mottet(bass), Laurent Delchambre(drums, percussion), Benoît Moerlen(marimba & electric vibraphone) and Susan Clynes(vocals). The cover is nice, like a painting with an angel or something. i think this is the first Belgian band I hear ever.

As near all modern records the lasting time is quite long but the contant has high quality. The Wrong Object shocks me with the first song which is totally perfect, a masterwork in its genre. "Detox Gruel" is powerful melodic jazz rock with monstrous soxophones shaping a wonderful sound. The saxes play a big role over the whole record and the listener won't be disappointed with this record. Such an explosion as the first track won't unfortunatley return. I consider "Frank Nuts" as an almost perfect track and the only song with (real) vocals "Glass Cubes" is mighty. The power in that track is almost symphonic and the band really show class. Of the other tracks I also would recommend "Spanish Fly", "Yantra", "Wrong but not false" and "Stammtisch", all exciting jazz rock in different styles.

The biggest disappointment is that the perfection of the first track doesn't come back. Also it could have been nice to hear more vocals when they did it so good on one track. The "Jungle Cow" trilogy is also an inferior row with quite uninteresting sounds which lower the full impression a bit. But this is still an even and intriguing record I would recommend. Fusion has big opportunities, both for listeners and musicians. Four stars!
