Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD)
Each time the sound gets fuller the organ floats in with power. Some dissonant sax late as well. Excellent track. Sax returns and we get vocals before 3 minutes. Two very good songs in a row. Vocals follow then we get a calm with piano after 2 minutes. The guitar then solos tastefully. An okay tune. The focus is on the vocals until around 2 minutes in. Vocals are back a minute later as well as some promininat sax.
Floating organ and Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) follow. No i'm okay Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) was just startled by this.
The sax and drums late are good. So if your into Proto-Prog and that Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) sound chances are you'll love this one.
This is something that really belongs at the end of the Sixties, with psychedelia having a huge impact on the overall sound. The use of saxophone combined with the guitar does give the music a somewhat fusion sound but for the most Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) doesn't really belong in that genre the problem with trying to pigeonhole music is that music isn't a pigeon, so often doesn't fit where people think it might?
But, whatever genre it may or may not belong to, the important question is it any good? Well, it is definitely dated not only musically but also in the arrangements and production, but is something that I really enjoyed playing. The guys obviously spent a lot of time together and this comes off with the interaction, and the use of different ideas such as vibraphone on "Law and Crime" which gives the song a very different feel with the dated drums driving it along while Jeff provides good strong vocals.
It is an effective album, definitely belonging to a bygone era, but is still something that while not essential is certainly worth hearing. One thing you'll pick up pretty quickly is how Jeff McMullin and Robert Owen singing lovely melodies in unison, bristling organ, Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) drumming that really sneaks up on you, dreamy electric guitar runs, darting flute and sinister Mellotron attacks.

Efg London Jazz Festival. Maelstrom: «Maelstrom» a. In Memory Opus None - Màelstrom* - Maelstrom (CD) only instrumental from the original LPChronicles and The Balloonist all additionally incorporate jazz-fusion elements into the blend, although a culmination in all cases has a darker, forward-moving pulse that brings to mind Van Der Graaf Generator.
Each of these five pieces goes through a number of phases, all of which fit comfortably together, including some surprisingly avant-tinged moments. Progressing through multiple permutations and featuring virtuosic drums, guitar and brilliant keyboard work from Mark Knox, each of them is the excellent representation of the skill and maturity. For something this big, it never wanders off or loses focus while allowing the band to stretch out in many directions.
