Probably the most unique piece is "The Princess And The Minstrel", with spoken verses and harmonious choruses that recalls "The Balance" by the Moodys but with an essence of medieval minstrelsy in both subject matter and style redolent of The Incredible String Band. Both "Dragon's Maid" and "Carnival" offer the remaining highlights and the most pure expression of an erstwhile "modern" progressive voice, thanks to some powerful mellotron blasts and majestic vocals that suggest Greg Lake in his King Crimson suit.
But I do not mean to suggest that this is top drawer paraphernalia. The remaining tracks are dull, limp snippets of psychedelia with no relation to their predecessors. It's hard to conjecture the evolutionary path of this album, and whether the group found its new voice and shoved the best material up front, or simply couldn't muster 40 minutes of more adventurous material so tacked on ersatz and passe tunes as filler.
But the net result is the same - half a good album and half a poor album adds up to a Wind that, while not foul, fails to invigorate. Review by Tarcisio Moura Prog Reviewer. Wind Quintet (1967) - Rudolf Escher - Nostalgies (Vinyl an outstanding tune. Then comes the short instrumental Schlittenfahrtthat leads to the strightforward blues rock Puppet Master.
Josephine reminds me of one the Monkees tunes. Ok, they were good musicians and could actually handle a wide range of styles, but the band at the time could not decided what they were going to, Wind Quintet (1967) - Rudolf Escher - Nostalgies (Vinyl.
Nor come up with real strong original material. The best track is a King Crimson reharsh. Production is only average. This is definitly for collectors and fans only. This album was a pleasant surprise considering nobody reviewed it. Much different and better IHMO than their debut album. This album will sure to please anyone who liked the apocolyptic feel of King Crimson's Epitah with the mellotron swirls and melancholic melodies that reflect doom. For anyone who likes mellotrons, I highly recommend Album).
In addition to the mellotron swirls and sometimes dramatic vocals, it was a pleasant surprise to hear vocal harmonies much in the way of early Crosby Stills and Nash. The only weak song on this album is the closing track Josephine which should have perhaps been left off the album. It's not a horrible song. It's just a straight ahead rocker with no progressive tendancies and has nothing to do Album) the general flow of the album. Consider that song the Cat food of King Crimson's 2nd album.
Other than that, there's really not much more to say. If you like the King Crimson Epitaph sound with a little bit of the Gabriel delivery, you should not be disappointed.
Like most other progressive albums, a few listens to let it grow. Best track is Dragon's Maid but they're all good except for the closer.
First was What do we do now. The tunes were very similar to Jane music - a little bit agressive but worth listening! Second was a ballad Dear little friend, very emotional and very similar to Novalis ballads and Jane as well. I would recommend this album as a compulsory album of kraut-rock for every listener of this kind of music! Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved.
