1 stars This album hasn't anything to do with the band WIGWAM that I know from records like "Fairyport" for example when Pekka Pohjola and Jukka Tolonon were still in the "Wigwam". In fact the only one left from this line-up is the singer and piano player Jim Pembroke, but even the vocs I don't like on this album. I can't agree to my co-reviewer at all that it sounds like albums from the mid 70s. I just recently listened to "Nuclear Nightclub" and "Being" and if I recall correctly it was a completely different kind of music from this album here. It was much more proggy and jazzy and you could really call it Canterbury sound but not "Titan Wheel". What the band is presenting here instead is absolutely mainstream rock/jazz music. In some way it reminds me to later Supertramp outputs. Songs which are rather hard rocking ones like No.12 are sounding very much like arena rock (Asia as an reference). Sorry to the musicians who actually perform quite well, but this kind of music is just a standard mediocre one perfect for airplay but far away from that stuff I use to know from them. 1 1/2 stars maximum!
