Absolutely. I was lucky enough to open for the band when I was in a metal-progressive rock band back in 2004-7 down in Invercargill at the bottom of the South Island. Highly memorable gig!

Let's hear it for New Zealand band Jakob!! Cale/Drew is such a great album. Thanks for recognising the band and including them :)

Wow. This is an excellent review. And the album, which I still haven't listened to, might be the one Sonic Youth album that I can get into (as an album). They can be a difficult band - lots of great songs, interspersed with crazy songs, or even boring songs. So far Washing Machine has had the most songs that I [i]like[/i] on it, which is what makes it most "accessible" for me.

Great review James. I can't wait to give it a listen. I'd probably say White Silence is simply the best overview type album for the uninitiated, as it covers all the bases. But Jupiter is a classic.

Excellent review! And am so happy that WWPJ have maintained such a high level of songwriting and craftsmanship. Bummed I missed out on this review, but am really glad you did a thorough job instead. :)

Great review! This is a band I really wish had let go of the Alice in Chains name and just started again with a new name. Sure there's lots of similarities, and all same members except one, but they could have also pushed in a new, and maybe more satisfying, direction.

Supertramp are great, but they got their pop crossover exactly right, just like Queen with Bohemian Rhapsody. 'Pure' prog rock is difficult for most like jazz fusion at its extremes. No doubt this is a classic though - even punk band Bad Religion make nods to it.

Top review Jack. Many an hour as a teenager looping this on my bedroom cassette player. ;)

I remember Fate of Nations coming out in '93 and loving it. There's a magic when Plant is with the right musicians, but finding those can be a tricky business, especially with the legacy that he has. Kevin Scott MacMichael (Cutting Crew) was that kind of individualistic talent to make it work.
