Musically, Caterwauling is very similar to Grim. Maestoso is listed under Eclectic Prog which I think is very appropriate. If you want references to other bands I can mention Strawbs, which is the closest point of reference I can think of. As on Grim, there is a perfect mix between the harmonic and the dissonant, the humours and the serious, the conventional and the weird, the sombre and the gritty.
And it all holds together well. Overall the album is very melodic and quite mellow with many ballads, but there are some rather surprising harder rocking passages and some very good lead guitar work on many tracks. The album starts with a short spoken introduction with the word Caterwauling being repeated over and over in different voices. I must say that I don't quite see the point of this introduction. The brutal and dissonant guitar sound on the opening section of this song is strongly influenced Robert Fripp as it sounds very much like King Crimson.
It then changes radically to a much more harmonic and symphonic guitar solo, more reminiscent of John Lees of Woolly's former band. After this the song changes again, radically, to a very mellow, folky vocal part backed by washes of Mellotron. The earlier parts of the song are then repeated towards the end of the song. This song tells a story of a man who went to war and this story is continued on the third track, The Road To Nowhere. All instruments are very well played and the backing band here has nothing to envy from Barclay James Harvest.
The keyboards, mainly Mellotron and piano, are omnipresent, but as on Barclay James Harvest's albums, the keyboard playing of Woolly was never flashy or virtuosic. The keyboards here rather just provide a symphonic backdrop for the lead guitars and vocals. Woolly's vocals are fragile and tender but not weak. I think he has matured as a vocalist over the years and I find his voice pleasant. This album is a very nice addition to any Prog collection, but I do recommend you to start with Grim, which is the better of the two in my opinion.
Both these albums are very recommended! Review by ZowieZiggy Prog Reviewer. So, what do we have here? Well, the worse and the best actually. The listener shouldn't be distracted by the awful but very short? It then turns into a pure symphonic jewel full of mellotron yes, I love this instrument.
The long instrumental passages are absolutely outstanding. They can compete with ''Firth Of Fifth'' probably no, I'm not kidding. They are in total opposition with these fantastic keys and guitar parts which are pure melody and passion. After this very special song, a more common and straight-forward pop-oriented track '' The Road To Nowhere'' contrasts severely with the complexity of ''Soldier?

This album featured Canadian hit video "Heavy Metal Love", which featured their new look. Under Seip's advice, Helix dropped their T-shirts and jeans in favour of leather clothing in order to stay current. The tour for this album cycle was not without drama.

Guy was unable to travel to the United States due to a previous drug conviction, and Uzelac came back to finish the tour. When Uzelac had fulfilled his commitment, Mark Rector of Kitchener was hired on bass.
He was let go at the conclusion of the tour. It sold over , copies in Canada, and over , internationally. Two versions were created: an uncensored version featuring semi-nude and topless women, and a censored version made available for the more mainstream media markets like MTV.
