CD Reviews

Douglas H. Bartlett | San Francisco | 01/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These guys were like the thinking man's Blood Sweat & Tears / Chicago. The horn arrangements are inventive, the sound is tight, the vocals spot-on and the tunes are interesting while still being accessable. Dig It!"
Fusion of Jazz-Rock
Mr. Joe Haverty | Mount Holly, NC, USA | 06/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The British version of the jazz-rock fusion bands of the 70's popularized by Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Chase and others...If however never caught on in this country...IF 2 came out in 1970 and continued the characteristic sound of their first lp...this album a little heavier on the rock side than their first release, which came out early the same year...if you like your jazz with a little "punch",check out If."
A true classic
Hans Petter Buvollen | La Paz, Bolivia | 12/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was truly cherished by a select group of music listeners in the early 1970s in small town Norway. The heavy arrangements were different from the American contemporates Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears and the absolute jewel was Sunday Sad, which to me has profound sentimental value. A flamenco riff on electric guitar opens a journey of instrumental superlatives and a tremendous jazzy session, including bass solo, to calm down with the same guitar opening. Unfortunately, I had my record collection stolen, and it took me several years to find If2 at a high price in a special collection of an Amsterdam record store. Now, If2 is safely stored on CD and iTunes, and I still enjoy playing it at very high volume. If is definitely part of the classic jazz rock scene, a rare band only known to few"
