Healing of the Lunatic Owl (Remastered). If there were such a genre as progressive horn rock, this would fit the bill. Healing Of The Lunatic Owl by Brainchild was released in 1970, when bands like Chicago and Blood Sweat And Tears made rock with brass popular around the wold. What distinguishes Brainchilld from those bands are the art-rock flourishes added to this music. Long chord detours, tricky time changes and extended track lengths rule this album. yet there is enough blues and rock in the song structures to ground the listener.

Although Brainchild‘s relative instrumental novelty is arguably enough to give them relevance with the jazz family tree, the composition and energy on Healing of the Lunatic Owl is almost entirely rock-based. The songwriting- regardless of quality- is fairly straightforward, and were it not for the glaring use of trumpets, there would be nothing in the music to betray a potential connection to jazz. Rather, Brainchild strikes me as a fuzzy, sometimes Krautrock-ish reflection of the wake of late ’60s psychedelic trends in Britain

Brainchild are clearly skilled musicians across the board, but their greatest strength on Healing of the Lunatic Owl is this ability of theirs to balance out instrumental sophistication and hooks. Whether you want to call this progressive rock, jazz or something else entirely, that golden ratio is a rare find- too often, the artists you'll see trying to make this blend sound bland or scattered
