Lástima que sólo editaran dos discos porque en el panorama de la escena de Canterbury fueron de lo mejorcito. Si te gustan Caravan y grupos similares este es tu disco.

A natural progression from Hatfield and the North, this is one of those albums that you dont want to stop playing. A reissue with cristal clear sound remaster by Spalax Music 1996, made in France.

Thanks W. Sheppard for recommending this fantastic album!!!

Of Queues & Cures is a really awesome listening experience! Everything I like about the Canterbury scene and the lengthy complex instrumental jams is perfectly captured on this album. In fact, it's really hard for me to choose between Hatfield & the North or the National Health. I'd probably give the edge to Hatfield & the North by a slight pinch of the nose but please, on any given day, don't make me decide! I need both in my life!

This is absolutely the very definition of a consistent album. Every instrumental passage flows into the other without ever seeming awkward, or unnecessary or missing a beat... which is exactly what Hatfield & the North and Caravan used to do so well! Everything just makes total sense and feels *right* when you listen to Of Queues & Cures. But that's not to say the band is playing it safe! No siree. This is music that sparks your imagination and makes you feel innocent and young again. Those were the days! Also, maybe I'm in the minority (yeah... then again *all* National Health fans are in the minority since we only make up a few thousand people!) but this album is much easier to get into than their first album, which I struggled with for a while. I'm only on my second listen with Of Queues & Cures and I'm already fully absorbed into it.

"The Bryden Two-Step (For Amphibians)" is probably way more listenable and understandable than trying to figure out the meaning behind the song title, haha. The definition of Bryden is a Norwegian metalhead.. .and I can't imagine that's what the band is singing about here! The song title makes me think about salamanders doing a dance routine at Bryden University which is silly but luckily for you and me the song itself is the exact opposite of silly. It's instead, incredibly amazing. The slick bass in the intro with chirping birds in the background is actually somewhat ominous and when the heavy guitar riff comes in... lookout! Hatfield & the North similarities aside, this song is the perfect introduction for anyone looking to get into these guys. It's not too much to handle at once, and the mood, instrumental variety and tempo changes are all trademark features firmly in place. The bass work at the end is really beautiful and wonderful. This is like Caravan but more easy-going. Caravan, at least on the early albums, sometimes feels like a much heavier band in comparison.

"The Collapso" is another unusual song title. Wow does the intro ever remind me of Van Der Graaf Generator's "Theme One!" quite a bit! But this song takes a near-identical theme and jams away making it perhaps better than my beloved VDGG classic. Love the mood shifts and the quirky Gentle Giant-like variety of experimental ideas. The subtle tropical vibes are a weird but interesting addition, but it turns absolutely *awesome* when the guitar jams over it. Love the moody keyboard and the soothing guitar too. Wonderful song.

"Squarer for Maud" is over 11 minutes long but won't get boring at ALL, I promise. I LOVE the dark piano intro, and the guitar solo a couple minutes later is surreal in how refreshed it makes me feel. See that? A hot shower or a cold splash of water on your face isn't the only thing needed to refresh a man! The cello part is oddly chaotic but likely to win me over in the long run. Right now it feels a little strange and unnecessary though. Actually this particular part reminds me of all kinds of farm animals escaping a barn and running loose! If you ever needed a song to play while animals are running free for a movie segment, this part of the song should fit just fine! I LOVE the guitar jam over the piano and the Robert Fripp-like guitar solo near the end. The Soft Machine mannerisms are impressive too. I can't go a whole review without mentioning the Soft Machine now can I? No!

"Dreams Wide Awake" has an AWESOME heavy metal-like intro and wow, some of these guitar tricks remind me of the classic "Frankenstein" by the Edger Winter Group! Who would have guessed I'd be hearing that band going into Of Queues & Cures? Surely not me. Surely not anyone! Love the fuzz box guitar jam and the funky catchy rhythm playing innocently behind all this delightful madness. The shift to a gentler mood is fantastic while the band continues to jam away with just as much passion. The return of the heavier guitar work near the end is equally fantastic.

ANOTHER scary intro! What is with this band and scary intros? The intro to "Binoculars" reminds me of a late 70's Henry Cow experiment. I love how this song steps into pretty and friendly territory for a little while only to suddenly venture down a more ominous road due to the unusual tempo changes. It's a subtle thing I guess but it's there. Oh wow, vocals! Haven't heard them up to this point and a part of me wonders why bother? Why bother including a vocal melody after 37 minutes of not having or needing one? Because they can, yeah yeah. :) John Greaves does in fact resemble Richard Sinclair of Caravan fame. It's strange how he sings a sophisticated melody similar to one you'd hear from Robert Wyatt and the Soft Machine, but then again, the vocal melodies from the classic years of the Soft Machine have turned out to be some of the very best melodies I've ever heard.

Anyway the flute solo is really melodic and downright beautiful. This song has some serious mood shifts, as I mention above! You know, I want to say it's beautiful but occasionally it feels creepy so I really can't. Such a tough decision to make on my part. Even when the band plays frightening music it still comes off sounding pretty due to the band possessing such a lovely sound. Anyway the trumpet solo has a "farewell everyone, we're off to sail the open seas" vibe. In fact the trumpet is just fantastic on this album. Usually I'm a picky trumpet person especially when it concerns using it on a Canterbury rock album which usually isn't a good combination. No pickiness needed here. A moment of brilliance occurs at the end- the playful bass guitar shifting into an electric guitar. The transition is remarkably spot-on.

What is going on with "Phlakaton?!" Not only do I have no idea what that word means, but I swear the band is dropping the F word in the beginning, and dropping it at least 3 times! When that little awkward moment is over however, we conclude with "The Bryden Two-Step (For Amphibians) Part Two". More dancing salamanders, haha. Only kidding. The Emerson, Lake & Palmer-resembling keyboard intro alternates with a heavy electric guitar for really crazy and fascinating results. More or less this just repeats the theme from Part One. This version concludes with a bonus track called "Apocalypso". Don't ask me what that means either. Don't you even ask mister! This song sounds like an updated (as in recently recorded) version of "The Collapso" but I can't say for certain that it is. It's a great song but the jam feels like the band members are goofing around too much. They better not be making a mockery of their own music! That would upset me a lot.

But what doesn't upset is is how fantastic this album is! Highly recommended.

This particular Dave Stewart, Phil miller, John Greaves and Pip Pyle project (although augmented by other musicians)here reached a climax, a peak of creativity and a maturity in the playing which was the obvious result of so much composing, writing and gigging for so many years. This particular incarnation brought a concept that had been cooking since the Hatfield and the North days (and i would say even since the Egg group days). Their unique brand of rock, jazz, classical and just plain Brit quirkiness is a blend we'll never see again. Who has the time? who has the patience and love for THE MUSIC anymore? in our present world, not many, i tell you. The music in this album has to be heard to be believed. Each musician a particular voice that when together become a much stronger 'animal'.

I am not sure about the bottom end sound of this particular release (i felt it lacks the 'umph' of my lp and other previous cd release) although i did sense a bit more 'air' around the instruments and a slightly clearer spectrum.

This is one album you can't miss if you are into intelligent, tasteful, fun and challenging music. Also, if you like Rock and extremely great solos this is recommended.
