Prog Reviewer
4 stars Between the cover art and the overall musical style, McLuhan is highly reminiscent of early underground British progressive rock bands - in particular, echoes of Warm Dust's style can be heard in the use of spoken word and brass instruments to craft a decidedly different texture from the rest of the pack. In fact, they were a US group, offering an intriguing style of progressive rock with fusion-derived flourishes which so far as I can make out never made much of a splash in its time. Possibly they'd have had better success in the UK or Europe, though equally this style of early progressive rock was already passing out of fashion in 1972, so it's only thanks to recent rediscovery on the Internet that they're beginning to get the appreciation they deserve.
