3 stars The Soft Machine's heirs ?

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Elton Dean & The Wrong Object's collaboration album some weeks ago and I pointed out how similar The Soft Machine and The Wrong Object is in style back then. Elton Dean sadly passed away and The Wrong Object is on their own on this album. But still, the Soft Machine influences are there.....

This album is a Jazz/Fusion album. I would also add Canterbury Scene to the description of both the sound and the music here. This album is by no means smooth jazz or jazz as most knows it. This is jazz straight up your face. It is like being roared at by a wild boar from the distance of two inches. The music is very, very intense at times. That goes for both the woodwinds solos and the guitars solos. But the band also knows how to slow the music down at times to give the listener time to both relax and reflect.

My main gripe is the lack of any really great melodies and hooks on this album. The album is superb on technical details, but not that good on melodies and hooks. But technically, this album is very impressive and that is all there is to it. That and the raw intensity.

This is a very good album, but the band can do better and will do better next time around.

3.5 stars
