If there is one album that connects the dots between fusion, progressive rock and avant-garde classical more completely than any other, Henry Cow's debut, 1973's Leg End, just might be it. This is one dazzling, daring and demanding record. Performing a tenuous balancing act between free improv and compositional complexity, the group unleashes some truly amazing acrobatics when it comes to rhythm and melody. In a lot of ways Henry Cow is the sonic equivalent of a pointillism painter. Each and every instrument is all about sharp pinpricks of sound rather than sinewy sustain and release.
