Prog Reviewer
5 stars Judy Dyble has the rare touch of voice that is impossible to let pass by. Once you hear her voice it will remain in your personal "archives". AND the most exquisite part is the way she can possess the song she sings in, either hers or when covering someone elsesīs song. I always have thought of her to be more progger-than folk. Of course the whole disclosure of the environment and instruments are completely Folk oriented, BUT the composition process offers a lot of space for experimentations. I myself think; that is the reason; considering her voice talent; she has been somehow overlooked; for more conventional "folk" aesthetics.) Her non conventional songs "freer" a la "King Crimson" impros and experimentations are really not that close to folk even the prog one. So here a lot of experimentation happens, BUT the songs do not divert to anywhere and nowhere; as it happens usually with experimental music. No; this woman as referred can possess the song as to let it progress for the purpose of itself not for the experimentation as such; no cheap tricks or detours. For me the mere fact of her as a true progger is undeniable. More experimental in its musical-language also; lets say this is not exactly "Fairport Convention" like melodies nor hard-rock/folk like the "Tull". They are closer to the ECLECTIC/prog-folk aesthetics. Judy Dyble is quiet appreciated by many founders of the first wave of Proggers. She normally gathers a very interesting crowd to the recording sessions (Robert Fripp-Lead Guitar, Effects [Soundscapes) in this one, among others). Her choice of songs to cover, give-out her root essentials (I Talk to the Wind" an early- KingCrimson song) and her songs (co-written with Swordfish) are very deep and intimate but also OBSCURE. Which turns them into an un-earthly experience more than an earthly/folk one. I myself greet this musician as a an example; both as a woman and a musician in this universe of Prog-Music *****5 "tough to choose between 3 very good Judy Dyble albums-close to masterful" Stars
