"Well, this is more like it. After two abolutely laughable psych-lounge albums, Fully Interlocking andTheraphosa Blondi, Dave Lawson took over Web.
This is the sound of a group transformed. I-Spider makes you forget everything you heard before. This is true jazz-prog-rock. Long songs with mutiple parts, fantastic playing, and guitar roars that remind me of early King Crimson. Heavy riffs segue into long, lyrical panio solos. Lawson's tasteful voice replaces the Tom Jones in tye-dye nightmare of Web's first vocalist.
Great recrod. Get it."
Trippy ,jazzy prog-rock

"I can't get enough of the fifth track,Always I Wait.This is a prog gem from 1970 that is on the jazzier side.Web consists of the usual quartet plus sax and vibraphone,the latter giving them a totally unique sound.The star of the band is the keyboard player who wrote all the songs and sings also.His keyboard solos are very unorthadox as he has free reign to play over top of the song structure.His name is Dave Lawson and he went on to play in Greenslade.After the album "I Spider" Webb changed their name to Samurai and put out one album in 1971 which is also a must have.Both albums have a mellow acid jazz feel,but not overly jazzy.I guess I would call this proto-prog with a jazz feel.Check this out,highly recommened."
