4 stars TRIODE were a French band who released this album back in 1971.This is an instrumental record with no keyboards which intrigued me to say the least. The flute and fuzzed out guitar takes turns leading the way (mostly flute though) while the bass, percussion and drums support. I must admit that this album didn't really remind me of any band in particular, this is just good intrumental music.

"Magic Flower" is bass, drum and flute led early. I like the drumming after 2 minutes. Just a great sounding opener. "Misomaque" is more uptempo and dynamic as the drums, bass and guitar lead before the flute joins in. Guitar to the fore 2 minutes in to end it.

"Moulos Grimpos" opens with bass and drums and it's laid back. Flute joins in as it stays mellow. Some fuzzed out guitar after 2 minutes. "Blasha" is uptempo with bass and drums before the flute and guitar join in.The guitar lights it up before 2 1/2 minutes then the flute returns before 4 minutes.

"Lilie" is a groovy number with some far out flute while the drums and bass support.The guitar replaces the flute after 2 1/2 minutes then the flute returns before 4 minutes. "Ibiza Flight" has a good bass intro as the drums help out.Guitar and flute then join the party. A guitar solo after 2 minutes that lasts a minute then it settles back. It picks up again late.

"Adeubis" is a short flute led piece. I do like when the guitar comes in though before a minute. "Come Together" is THE BEATLES track that they have covered. Interesting to hear that flute-voice-over early on in this instrumental version. I like the fuzzed out guitar after 2 minutes and later before 4 minutes.

"Chimney Suite" is by far the longest track at under 9 minutes. Flute,percussion and bass lead as the guitar joins in quickly. Flute leads after 3 1/2 minutes then the guitar returns after 5 1/2 minutes and proceeds to rip it up.The flute is back leading before 7 minutes.

4 stars and well worth that rating.
