Some Great Moments

"SOUNDS LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN RICK WRIGHT AND DAVID GILMOUR WITH SOME NEW AGE TINGES.
This album came out in 1985. It is 43 minutes long and the sound quality is very good, especially for a CD from 1985. There are no liner notes giving credits, so it is hard to tell who did what.
It is by Nick Mason from Pink Floyd, just before he and David Gilmore got back together to record the "Pink Floyd" CD, a Momentary Loss of Reason, and Rick Fenn, who was briefly in 10cc as the group was winding down in popularity.
This is a very nice CD throughout with some great moments. It is kind of rock-jazz album and much of the music sounds like the times (mid 1980's).
Some of the songs sound like they could be on one of David Gilmour's albums. David Gilmour actually does sing on Lie for a Lie. Some of the guitar playing sounds like it might have also been added by Gilmour.
Many of the instrumentals sound like they could have been on Rick Wright's first solo album, Wet Dreams. Who knows, maybe he is on the CD also.
But, what it really good on this CD is the original sounding compositions. They sound like the new age music being played at the time, but only with more life. The title composition is really the stand out piece on the CD.
As I write this, this CD is out of print, hard to find, and can be expensive to buy (but that could all change). For a regular priced CD, this would be a nice addition for any Pink Floyd fan. At the higher prices, you might want to think twice about it."

"While this is certainly a must have for any Pink Floyd fan, I should warn you that it isn't Pink Floyd. Unless you listen to this album with an open mind, you'll be disappointed. I was impressed with Nick's drumwork, particularly on Profiles parts 1 & 2. Rhoda is also a very peaceful and relaxing track with some great soloing. I think this collaboration runs circles around Nick's previous solo album, "Fictitious Sports" and it's nice to hear David Gilmour on "Lie For A Lie", although the song itself is a bit cheesy. Overall, it's a great buy and I highly recommend it."
