Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Very much an organ driven band who put out two albums in the early seventies. I must admit i've struggled with my rating here. I love Krautrock but this album comes across more like a URIAH HEEP record at times, a band i'm not too fond of. Now it's certainly not all like that. I really like when they slow things down.The sound quality is okay but poor by todays standards. Love the pictures of the band, three of the guys have the biggest afros I think i've ever seen(haha).

"What do we Do Now" opens with organ before vocals and a full sound join in. A calm with flute after 1 1/2 minutes then it kicks back in as contrasts continue. The organ is great 6 1/2 minutes in and it's followed by a guitar solo. "Now It's Over" is my favourite. The organ floats as gentle guitar and reserved vocals join in. Very FLOYD-like. "Romance" is a short piano filled track.

"Springwind" is my second favourite. It features organ and piano early as the wind blows in. It kicks in after a minute. The vocals sound so good,different from normal. The guitar and organ are ripping it up before 6 minutes. "Dear Little Friend" features powerful organ in fact it's nasty at times. Some guitar before 3 minutes. "Red Morningbird" is the almost 16 minute closer. It's pastoral with nature sounds early. Vocals after 3 minutes then it kicks in around 5 minutes. The guitar lights it up a minute after that. Another calm then heaviness after 12 minutes. It settles once more to end it.

It's funny but the two songs I like the best sound different from all the rest. I'm giving it 3.5 stars but will continue to listen, so I may upgrade it down the road.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Neo Prog Team
3 stars One of the pioneers of the early 70's German progressive rock scene.They were formed in mid- 60's in Erlangen under the name Bentox and offering a beat sound.In 1969 they were renamed to Chromosom,this time they added elements from the West Coast sound in their style.By 1970 Bernd Leistner leads the band as a vocalist and the band dramatically changed its sound,now under the name Wind.Their debut ''Seasons'' was released in 1971 on the obscure low budget label +Plus+,which managed to release only three albums before closing.

''Seasons'' is a nice example of Heavy and Prog Rock mix,typical of early 70's.''What Do We Do Now'' is an alternating cut between VANILLA FUDGE Heavy Rock and smooth organ/acoustic guitar/flute passages with aggresive vocals.''Now It's Over'' is characterized by its psych organ- driven softness,while the short ''Romance'' shows evident influences from the romantic period under organ and piano sounds.''Springwind'' is a magnificent piece of heavy organ-driven prog with massive multi-vocals and slight classical influences.The flipside opens with ''Dear Little Friend'',which is strongly influenced by DEEP PURPLE filled with organ,complex guitar work and aggresive vocals,another strong track.I would expect more from the epic of the album ''Red Morningbird'',slow psychedelic start with Teutonic vocals and harmonica before the short guitar/organ Hard Rock explosion,then the mellow harmonica/organ style will return till the nice complicated end with the hard rockin' guitar riffing and the haunting vocals.

''Seasons'' is placed exactly on the line between the Hard Rock sound of the early 70's and the upcoming snowball of the Progresive Rock movement.The album and the band deserve some wider recognition for their daring sound and high levels of energy throughout the listening.Strongly recommended to fans of the new-born progressive sound around 1970...3.5 stars.

3 stars 3.5 really

Wind was one of the bands from early '70 from Germany who had a very short career from 1970 untill 1973, they rleased 2 albums and then gone into oblivion. First album named Seasons from 1971 is a fairly decent towards great heavy prog, quite typical for that period. I like this album has some nice guitar parts and aswell some great heavy organ, imagine something a la Uriah Heep same period or germans Kin Ping Meh for example. Solid heavy prog with lots of twists and turns and a bove all some very good vocal parts. The opening track What Do We Do Now is a killer one, love it, very fine at best heavy prog with excellent vocal passages, without german accent or bad improvisations. Another highlight is the short instrumental Romance, very fine keyboards here, smooth and elegant. the rest of the pieces are also good. All in all a good debute, maybe sounding date it today, but fans of thegenre will find lot to enjoy here.3.5 stars.

4 stars This is a prog rock classic from Germany. The debut of Wind is a keyboard orientated work, heavily influenced by the first three albums of Uriah Heep. Nevertheless, they have their own sound, which is more in the underground vein, like many other albums recorded in Germany during the early 70' ... (read more)

4 stars I had a pleasure to listen the album a long time ago. My attention was attracted by two perfect songs. First was What do we do now. The tunes were very similar to Jane music - a little bit agressive but worth listening! Second was a ballad Dear little friend, very emotional and very similar to ... (read more)
