Album Review

Of Sigmund Snopek's three early '70s recordings, this one has aged the best. Much better, in fact, than the albums that preceded and succeeded it: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1972) and Nobody to Dream (1975). Musically speaking, that is. The lyrical concept of this recording deals with bubble freaks, Ockar Thrinking, Blackmar Chrinking, and Osmidachoo from the star of Seize or some such foolishness. But in the world of progressive rock themes, this doesn't fall out of the realm of acceptability. This two-disc set contains the original 1974 recording as well as its supplement and sequel recorded between 1996 and 1999. It showcases Snopek at his esoteric best as a fusion of jazz, prog rock, modern classical, funk, rock & roll, and space music combined with sci-fi absurdity to yield a thoroughly unique album. The music is both complex and engaging (a trademark of Snopek's rock-oriented compositions) and is extremely well performed. Nearly three dozen musicians contribute to this recording, including pop saxophonist Warren Wiegratz, Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie, cellist Paul Gmeinder, and original Cheap Trick vocalist Xeno. Those disparate artists are indicative of the variety and eccentricity found on Trinity Seas, Seize, Sees whose updated portion is clearly the most progressive effort by Snopek since 1982's Roy Rogers Meets Albert Einstein.

On his own and with his band the Bloomsbury People, he began playing an unconventional mixture of avant-garde rock, classical music, and baroque pop that eventually came to be characterized as progressive rock when it hit the mainstream a couple years later. He continued making intriguing music — ranging from Top 40...
