Album Review

Following his stint in the group Metro with Sean Lyons and Peter Godwin, Duncan Browne turned up in 1978 with his first solo album since the dawn of the '70s. The Wild Places isn't much like his Immediate album Give Me, Take You — indeed, it's more like a lost Roxy Music album, or perhaps a lost Bryan Ferry record. It's electric, and the music has a sense of drama as well as beautiful melodies that were even better realized, with lush contributions on the synthesizer and related keyboards by Tony Hymas and a fierce guitar sound courtesy of Browne himself, aided by the up-front presence of John Giblin and Simon Phillips on bass and drums, respectively. The music runs the gamut from edgy progressive rock to straight-ahead rock & roll (the latter highlighted by "The Crash"), though Browne was at the top of his game, as both a singer and composer, working in an introspective, romantic vein, as on the killer title cut and numbers like "Roman Vecu" and "Kisarazu." [The 2000 Japanese import of The Wild Places combines the album with Streets of Fire.]

Customer Reviews

Amazing Album!!!

Another Musical Artist who IMHO has no real contemporary to compare musical style to. Seriously- nobody makes music like Duncan Browne. The music Duncan Browne created with Metro is great too! Quite a few of Duncan Browne's albums are being reissued and not so oddly enough are also being pre-ordered to the extent that CD reissues that are not even created yet are unavailable.

Note: Duncan Browne was also a featured Artist on Top Of The Pops

Do yourself a favor and just buy this album because you won't even find it at any SF Bay Area "Rock Swap" if you want a vinyl LP. I know this from experience. You will save on gas money or bus fare.

As a boy, Duncan Browne intended to follow his father, an Air Commodore (British equivalent of a one-star Air Force general), into the Royal Air Force, but his poor health even as a youth precluded this as a possibility. Instead, he chose to pursue his interests as an actor — he played the clarinet and studied music theory, but wasn't possessed to consider a career in music until, at age 17, he saw Bob Dylan in an appearance on a BBC drama called The Madhouse on Castle Street, during the American...
