Wobble - To move or rotate with an uneven or rocking motion or unsteadily from side to side. Wobbler - a fishing lure but it´s also a restaurant in my hometown of Orebro. However, in this case this review refer more to the Norwegian progrock band by the same name. They formed in 1999 and released their debut album "Hinterland" in 2005, the follow up "Afterglow" came out in 2009 and two years later their 3rd effort "Rites at dawn" pleased all fans of old school prog, the way it sounded between 1969-1974. You could say Wobbler sound like 75% Yes, 20% Gentle Giant and 10% Jethro Tull, the musicianship is awesome and singer Andreas Wettergren Prestmo would do a fine job replacing Jon Anderson in Yes for sure. This is a highly impressive album but my personal faves are "Le Bealtaine" and "In orbit". Even the production sound exactly like the analog albums from the early 70´s and the Mellotron is right on spot.
