4 stars Being is a near masterwork from a band truly working at their peak. Wigwam is not a prog group per se--in their infancy they fused jazz and rock and jammed heavily and flipped out. But then they pulled in the reins and made Being--Stevie Wonder meets Robbie Robertson.

Heavy and brooding with lighter undertones sprinkled here and there, the album takes shape quickly and the flow is nice. "Pedagogue" and Prophet" are true highlights, with the latter highlighting vocals you'd swear were Stevie Wonder.

Not a true representation of the bands aspirations, but a great album nonetheless. This record is 39 minutes well spent from a band that has soul.
