Editors’ Notes U.K.’s first album takes rhythmic inspiration from contemporary funk while firmly retaining the fusion of rock, classical, and jazz that characterized British prog in the mid-’70s. “In the Dead of Night” is all galloping stabs and stentorian organ, with regular sprays from Allan Holdsworth’s burning guitar, while the relatively calm and mournful “By the Light of Day” lays bohemian jazz fiddle against rolling synth. “Thirty Years” is half languid buildup, half herky-jerk fanfare, while “Nevermore” gleefully incorporates a disco strut into the band’s compositional arsenal.
