CD Reviews

Ouch, a Passport lemon!
Oliver Towne | Riverside, CA United States | 03/21/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I dig much of what Doldinger and his various Passport bands have done. (See my review of Passport To Paradise.) Unfortunately, this album is not one such case. Apparently, either Klaus or Atlantic decided to try to cash in on the disco craze with a bunch of "four-on-the-floor" drum beats, predictable major key melodies, and--oh, yes--vocoderized singing. But like most such attempts by jazz and/or fusion artists, the results were lame. (I knew there was a reason I got into new wave and punk around that time.) Having recently rediscovered my fondness for early Passport, and not having any reviews to go by, I took a chance on "Oceanliner." Don't you make the same mistake."
Right Up There With "Sky Blue"!
Andre' S Grindle | Bangor,ME. | 06/27/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's the 1980's and Passport have something to say.
The opening "Departure" gets the ball rolling with a super dance number while "Allegory" tones things down a bit.Most notable are
the exciting tital song,the major-key and dancable "Rub-A-Dub"
and "Seaside" but one shock is the all-to-brief and somewhat out
of place "Scope",a two and a quarter-minute blast back to acoustic jazz that demonstrated the musicians roots as well as their place in the larger musical spectrum.This is not Passports
greatest later album-that would be "Man In The Mirror" (see my
review",but it's a very close second and although musically
dissimilar in many ways should be purchased alongside that and
the also noteworthy "Earthborn" from '82.Breathtaking!"
