Review by Progfan97402

— First review of this album —
4 stars Wavemaker was one of many projects created by people who worked at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, in this case Brian Hodgson and John Lewis. They created Electrophon Studios, so no surprise many albums recorded by these people were recorded there, including In a Covenant Garden by Electrophon (Hodgson and Dudley Simpson), and Zygoat (American Burt Alcantara with Hodgson and Simpson), and of course both Wavemaker's albums. Where Are We Captain is the first and to be honest his is more or less a continuation of the sound created by Zygoat. There is a strong reminder of Synergy here, so this sounds like the UK answer. If you enjoy Zygoat, there's no reason not to enjoy this album. "Double Helix" is some really great and adventurous piece of progressive electronic. "Lodestar" features some interesting synth sounds, while "Wavemaker" is more simply tripped out sounds. The music has that rather hi-tech futuristic sound overall. I'm glad to see these musicians working for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop did much more than create music and sound effects for Doctor Who, but went out of their way to record albums that were available to the public. Sure Wavemaker can get a little cheesy at times, but there's no denying great stuff making Where Are We Captain? a worthy addition to your collection. Unfortunately it's never been reissued, luckily original LPs can still be had for a reasonable price.
Thanks to sheavy for the artist addition.
