3 stars This second album of DARRYL WAY"S WOLF is the one I would recomend that you start with but the first album is equally as good. Messakar's singing is only present in two or three tracks (the rest are intrumental) and Game Of X is a total rip-off from Focus:s Hocus Pocus which makes this Bogus. This album was produced by ex-Crimson member Ian McDoald (he has also done Modern Masquarade of Fruup) and played on one number . The rest of the music stays pleasant with a very mid-hard/soft sound that I can only say is rather "passe-partout" and is mainly instrumental on their first two albums . It is not likely to displease anyone but wil not have you tearing down the walls in musical orgasms either. I will not say that this band is essential in prog but if you have time and money to spend , why not indulge?

4 stars WOW! This not very well known progressive rock band gives us here a wonderful album, full of impressive violin, electric & acoustic guitars and VERY dynamic & punchy bass! The drums are very well played and rather complex. Everything is very well synchronized, like Gentle Giant. It sounds a bit like Curved air, Caravan, Kayak, the King Crimson of the 70's, Camel and Gentle Giant; but this album has really its own sound, and this makes the band very interesting. There is a good interrelation between the electric violin and the guitars. The lead vocals are very good, and surprisingly the keyboards are not extremely abundant, mainly consisting in discreet electric & acoustic piano, and in a couples of spacy moog solos. "MacDonald's Lament" is absolutely a gem with its mellow crescendo featuring an unforgettable violin solo!

4 stars Actually the first album from Darryl Way's Wolf(sorry Progarchives; but we all make mistakes!) this 1973 effort found the former Curved Air violinist teaming up with talented Canadian bassist Dek Messecar, future Soft Machine guitarist John Etheridge and drummer Ian Mosley(who would, of course, go on join Marillion over a decade later). With Way's enigmatic violin riffs leading the way, 'Canis Lupus' is indeed a fine album, taking its stylistic lead from Curved Air but adding a tougher, more muscular sheen whilst also embracing elements of ethereal folk, playful jazziness and some startling instrumental interplay from the foursome. Highlights are many; the gorgeous guitar riff that pins together opening gambit 'The Void' proves a real treat, the fearsome 'Isolation Waltz' adds a powerful rock veneer to proceedings whilst the final, haunting mini-epic 'McDonald's Lament' showcases Way at his very best. For those who find Curved Air a little wimpy, Darryl Way's Wolf should prove a perfect antidote. An excellent debut release. STEFAN TURNER, STOKE NEWINGTON, 2012

Beatiful themes, excellent playing (especially Way's violin (as usual :) ) and guitar work), nice vocal, the rest of album's instrumentals also are good (though I prefer songs). Despite previous review I think there is no r ... (read more)

4 stars "Canis-Lupus" of WOLF released in 1973. There is a fantasy that is common to all tunes and soft though it is a variegated content. It seems to make a simple idea the one to stimulate imagination richly comparatively. It is a work of a very expression of feelings and fantastic sound. The master ... (read more)
