3 stars This obscure Canadian progressive outfit released one little gem in 1978 with its side long epic "Out For A Walk". This 7 piece ensemble remarkably mixes modern alternative prog elements aka MERCURY REV with classic late 70's lustre. This album really does not sound at all dated and really carriers a very modern sound and could easily pass for an album of the new millennium. This concept album is really 4 shorter tracks which sets up the side 2 epic long track "Our For A Walk". Vocals are sung in English and are mostly spoken giving the listener a darker atmospheric feeling in nature. Instrumentally MILKWEED blend guitar, bass and drums with oboe, sax and piano into a dark ensemble-like musical structures. The end result is a very avant-garde album which IMHO is completely awesome.
