4 stars Triode is a total obscure and forgotten french psych prog band from early 70's who manage to release a sole album in 1971 named On N'a Pas Fini D'avoir Tout Vu at Futura label. The album will be released on CD by Mellow records almost 30 years later. The album is instrumental entirely dominated by excellent flute playing by Michel Edelin, who will please fans of progressive music for sure, the similarity is with of course Jethro Tull or some bands from canterbury from that period, maybe early Caravan or Traffic for ex, but Triode playes a more jazzy kind of instrumental prog with fascinating flute interludes.The psychedelic sound of the guitar combined with brilliant flute chops gives overall an excellent example of how great and imaginative were the bands in the '70's in progressive rock movement. The album is up tempo, not a single piece is weak, nice musicianship, specialy on opening track Magic Flower, Moulos Grimpos, Blahsha or the cover of Beatles - Come together show a band in big form, but with all that they remain totaly unknown to larger public, even in prog circles is kinda forgotten. I will give 4 stars for sure, excellent ex of early french prog, with a lot to offer, nice cover art btw, one of my fav from prog. Recommended
