Prog Reviewer
4 stars A remarkably confident debut album from Cos, displaying a Canterbury sound strongly influenced by the whimsical and experimental spirits of Frank Zappa's Uncle Meat-era material and the early Soft Machine albums, and also displaying a certain tendency towards lighter, airy material of the sort Hatfield and the North were dabbling with at the time. Like the Hatfields, Zappa, and Robert Wyatt, the band clearly believe in the potential of the human voice as a musical instrument, and so vocalist Pascale Son's exceptional talents are put to fine use. Her command of her vocal abilities is impressive, as is the wisdom of her decision not to mimic the usual Wyatt-inspired aaah-aaah-aaahs of typical Canterbury fare but to plunge into her own crazed tangent. Very much worth a listen for Canterbury fans.
