4 stars "Being" was in many ways a step-up from its predecessor "Fairyport". For one Pembroke's contributions work well with the whole concept, unlike on the previous album where he basically had 4 straightforward songs going completely against the stylistic grain. The first three tracks represent the best of Gustavson, Pembroke and Pohjola, respectively. Fourth track "Pedagogue" is the longest track and there is a distinct Zappa influence on the woodwind arrangement. Gustavson's virtuostic keyboard playing and original singing carries this song as well. Side 2 is slightly weaker but it still features the excellent string-heavy instrumental "Planetist". This is my favorite from Wigwam and highly recommended.
Salviaal | 4/5 |
