Avoid, not progressive rock , but a sub-par boring pop album

"Released in 1994, containing songs that were supposed to come out in the late 1970's when they were considered to have lost it, or pressured into writing song with new wave pop influence in order to sell records.
These would have be considered tracks too lousy to make it then.
In 1994 there are tired renditions of them by a band that seemed to be making a record to support themselves and their family."
Wow what a great CD

"I stumbled upon Caravan in the late 80s by way of Gong and Soft Machine, and got into their first few albums (1968 - 1974 period), then around '91 I found their Canterbury Collection compilation of '80s material which was pretty soft by my tastes but still worth listening to for a couple of good songs.
Well this CD, Cool Water, along with recent siblings All Over You and The Unauthorized Breakfast Item, really show what the band has been up to in the last decade, namely that they still have outstanding songwriting. Performance and production values are also top notch. If you are feeling down and need some uplifting, positive music with finely honed ideas, lyrics and polished sounds look no further than this or any of the above mentioned titles.
Listening to Caravan will make you feel better."
