Softs is the ninth studio album by the jazz rock band Soft Machine, released in 1976. John Etheridge replaced Allan Holdsworth on guitar shortly after the release of the previous album, Bundles, and Alan Wakeman, cousin of keyboardist Rick Wakeman, took over saxophone duties from Karl Jenkins. Karl would play keyboards exclusively from this point onward.
This is Soft Machine's first venture in guitar driven jazz-rock. It's unjustly maligned by Soft Machine "purists" for it's then commercially more viable sound. When I bought the album in 1975 (Vinyl!) I thought it was one of the best fusion albums I'd heard untill then. After all these years it's still as good. It's not better or worse then the older Soft Machine albums. I own them all. It's just a different album. One of its strengths is the great variety. Holdsworth's tireless soloing style literally arcs over the harmonic backdrop the Machine provides on Bundles. Hazard Profile I" just BLAZES and is worth the price of admission on it's own. Allan also proves to be the best soloist the Machine ever had, evoking Coltrane's "sheets of sound".
