3 stars "Sea Son" from 1974 is considered one of the finest titles from Danish fusion monsters Secret Oyster and is considered underrated by many of their fans. While not the genre of prog I am most familiar with, I can say that these guys are very talented players and their songwriting approach is adventurous. Guitarist Claus Bohling really tears it up over the course of many extended solos. Those who enjoy heated instrumental jamming with occasional chill-out sections will eat this album up. Spice is added to some tracks courtesy of violins, cello, trumpet, sax, and congos. The most amazing fact about this album that I culled from the liner notes is that it was recorded in a mere 4 days. 4 freakin days! Some bands pencil in that much time for bathroom breaks! I don't really have a favorite track. All of this is pretty good for instrumental rock lovers. I have nothing against Secret Oyster but in the jazz-fusion genre I prefer bands like Finnforest, Area, Esagono, and the first Lotus album. I guess I just find their material more interesting and/or emotional. But I still have to recommend this title to any jazz/fusion fan as I don't believe it will disappoint anyone. The sound is good and even the three bonus tracks are worthwhile, unlike most bonus tracks which are usually not worth your time. Good stuff.
