Editorial Reviews

They were quite possibly the craziest band to have ever emerged from Canada. So crazy, in fact, that they opted to craft some of the most perplexing music whilst laughing directly in the face of commercial success. This was Max Webster, one of the most audacious and, by contrast, respected rock bands that exploded out of the Canadian scene during a time when music was less about mass marketing and more about making a statement that resonated with die-hard devotees.
Mutiny Up My Sleeve, originally released in 1979 and partly produced by Terry Brown (Rush), was Max Webster's third album and once again it showcased the band in particularly nimble form; the progressive arrangements dovetail neatly, with hard hitting riffs and much spectacular lead guitar work.

I must disagree with my fellow reviewer who finds MUTINY UP MY SLEEVE worth only one star, and compares it unfavorably to the sounds (I hesitate to call such grindingly unmelodic noise 'music') of 80s and 90s thrash-metal. The Canadian group Max Webster's followup to their excellent HIGH CLASS IN BORROWED SHOES is a superb collection of melodically and harmonically sophisticated rock music--as competently written, arranged, and played as anything by Yes in their classical-rock heydey, but without the arty pretensions and rambling. Rarely are radio-friendly rock songs this sophisticated (an observation that is also true of Steely Dan and very few others.) The interplay between band members is tremendous--instrumentally adventurous without detracting from the focus on well-structured melody and harmony. Listen to "Astonish Me", "Waterline", and "Lip Service" for proof. Kim Mitchell--who went on to become one of Canada's most successful domestic guitar-hero rock stars--contributes absolutely superb, accessible guitar lines that remind me of Larry Carlton's work with Steely Dan: elegant, powerful melodies and arpeggios rendered with taste, technique, and a jazzy knowledge of chord extensions and upper intervals. Not just the warp-speed noodling that currently passes for virtuosity in contemporary 'metal.' Do yourself a favor and try this great Canadian band at the height of its late-70s powers. Also recommended: HIGH CLASS IN BORROWED SHOES, and A MILLION VACATIONS. Great stuff, I promise.

There is only one problem with Mutiny Up My Sleeve...it ends. This is an album that speaks volumes considering the foul sounds that were being produced on the canadian music market; not to mention the american market. On this album, 4 musicians and one brililant lyricist came together to create possibly the greatest album to come out of Canada of all time. This album from start to finish never fails to amaze, rock and just simply blow away! I would like to say this album is flawless, but that would be an understatement. This album is flawnone.
From the opening of Lip Service, "Max" shows that they know how to write a riff and it is possibly one of the best examples on this album to show that "Max" know how to write a song. The transitions, and there are many, are smooth and just plain brilliant. Most of these riffs are contradictory, but Max work them in a way which is almost laughable. One has to laugh at the fact that Rush have tried and tried to do what Max has done and failed every time. From here we are brought to the first Watkinson piece which has the prgressive romanticism that is always found on his songs. Not to mention the incredible soloing on Mitchell's part. On this song the listener gets a sense of a band who know exactly what they are all thinking and how they can put that connection into their writing.
The second Watkinson piece, which is by far the weak link on the album, has its moments during the last 1:30 of this song. This piece is the proverbial broken nail, on an otherwise prefect body.
From the first heavier songs, they slow it down with a sad "Water Me Down" on which the great production of this album is noticeable with a beautifully sounding piano and guitar; not to mention Mitchell's voice.

While "High Class in Borrowed Shoes" is a great album start to finish, this one is not quite as good. Starts off pretty promising with "Lip Service" - lyrics are much more cynical and mocking than earlier material on this one. "Astonish Me" is another fine track, the piano intro really throws the listener off expecting a nice ballad, then breaks into a completely different groove as the Max Machine channels Frank Zappa into something entirely different. Where I feel the CD loses track is on "Let Your Man Fly" and "Water Me Down" - I just never really got into either track, the CD could have omitted them and probably would be better for it. "Distressed" brings the CD back up with some really great guitar lines and cool groove mixing some more progressive drop measures in to twist and turn things up. "The Party" has always been a favorite track of mine - the crowd shouted intro, the crazy ass modulations and meter changes, and of course the lyrics being really mocking and clever, this is a true classic of Sarniatown excess. "Waterline" is much more mainstream blues based, but so groovy with Terry's unique choice of keyboard sound it maintains the Max "off the beaten path" sensibility. Finally - "Hawaii" with the mash up of Japanese melody motif mixed with the cocktail mixing and chimey keyboard pad, sets up a true Zappa vibe with the disparate ingredients making for a very cool instrumental that is quite different from the "balls to the wall" fireworks, but still shows off great musicianship all around. Which leads to the crescendo of the album - "Beyond the Moon". Starting with some nifty bouzouki riffs that really shred, then jumps abruptly into the full band being Max. Great song, great album that only has the two warts detracting from a classic.
