CD Reviews

Still Ahead of it's Time (and Space)
Thaddeus B. Rosemyer | Massena, NY USA | 11/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a band! Just listen to this LP: it's got everything good about the mid-70s--it's progressive, funky, heavy. If u dig Captain Beyond, Bob Welch's F. Mac, Atomic Rooster w/Farlowe, or Birth Control then check these guys out. It's a virtual supergroup--Welch, Cornick & Mooney. Get their 1st LP, too."
Big Sound, 2061

"Bob Welch ESSENCE! Welch fans will love the continuation and refinement of his sound which began to be recognizeable in the earlier Fleetwood Mac albums like "Mystery To Me" & "Heroes Are Hard To Find" in the mid-70s.Very bluesey, very dreamy, very Welch!Enjoy!Lenny"
Second effort by a great but unsung group
Gareth Davies-Morris | San Diego, CA USA | 04/29/2008

"Sophomore release from Bob Welch's short-lived power trio. If you've found this you probably know the history: ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist who graced some of their best pre-Buckingham/Nicks stuff (Bare Trees, Mystery To Me, etc.) forms group with ex-Tull bassist Glen Cornick, sets out to replicate Zeppelin -- and does! The consensus on this album is that it's closer to his Fleetwood Mac stylings than what's on the extraordinary debut, which sounds like some unreleased third disc to Physical Graffiti. In part that's because Ex-Nazz drummer Thom Mooney's cleared out, taking his Bonham-isms with him, and the new man on the traps, Hunt Sales (ex-Runt, future Tin Machine) doesn't have that style at all. Also, Welch has turned down the guitars and layered on the vocals. Nonetheless, the songs are as lyrical and melodic as anything else he's written, just not as heavy as what's on the first album. It still rocks (Blue Robin, Money Love, the title track) but with a funkier, groovier sound. The record closes magnificently, too: Janie is as good as anything on the debut -- it's this album's Narrow Gate, you could say. Great sci-fi artwork, as well. Get it!"
