"Strangeitude" featured guitarist Ed Wynne and bassist Roly Wynne on seven progressive rock instrumentals that valued dynamics and creativity. The instrumentation is essentially guitar, bass, synths and drums with the occasional flute or other acoustic instrument tossed into the soup for variety. There are no vocals, though the occasional spoken word or phrase is mixed in, adding to the swirling wall of sound. The standout performer throughout is guitarist Ed Wynne, whose crunching rhythms and smoking lead work are entertaining and really add to the music. This CD became their biggest seller and landed them a U.S. contract with Capitol Records. "Strangeitude" is highly prized among fans of progressive instrumental rock music, stretching the boundaries of space and time.
