FORMAT: CD CAT. NO.: 86423 YEAR: 1992 LABEL: Anthem
While not all Max Webster would classify as prog-rock, this one IS their "prog-rock album".
Max Webster is unique in a Be Bop Deluxe kind of way. Not overtly prog-rock, but pretty darn close. They can sound as lush as Steely Dan, as heavy as Deep Purple, as progressive as Rush and as quirky as Gentle Giant...all in one track.
Throw in a little Frank Zappa and some Canterbury sounds to boot.
4 stars overall, but 5 stars as THE Max Webster masterpiece (a close 2nd would be 'High Class In Borrowed Shoes', which is their sophomore effort) .
