"Angelic vocals? David Clayton-Thomas? No, I'm speaking of the
wonderful harmonizations of the female vocalists that run through this c.d.,
sometimes singing along with Thomas, sometimes
trading lines back and forth. I heard this release for the very
first time recently.(Where have I been?). I think it is as good
as their earlier releases, which came as a bit of a surprise
to me. It is much different, to be sure, but just as good. THEY
intersects a bit of the classical with a funky brass section,
top notch vocals from Thomas,(he is in top form through out), and
great keyboard work. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVER agin starts out
with a classical feel, but quickly changes into a country style
tune, highlighted by those angelic voices I spoke of earlier.
KATY BELL features great brass with a piece of dominant
saxophone work, and my, my, those voices. SWEET SADIE THE SAVIOR
is a soulful number, as is YOUR THE ONE, while HOLLYWOOD is "get
down" funk. HEAVY BLUES is just that, heavy blues. They finish
this offering off with SAVED BY THE GRACE OF YOUR LOVE, a hymn-
like tune heavy on the great vocals.(Thanks girls for that touch
of heaven). This is obviously not the classic B.S.&T. sound, but
it is an excellent piece of work nonetheless. I hope you enjoy
it as much as I do.
Thanks, and keep that smile on your face.
BS&T - More Than Ever CD

"I am a huge BS&T fan, and was very disappointed in this CD. It was supposedly done in the early 1970's when the band was dolling out hit after hit, but only one or two of the songs are halfway decent. I sort of feel like I've been fed a bad line about this CD, and would not recommend anyone else wasting their hard earned dollars on it."
Less than ever....

"I'm a huge fan of BS&T, but not necessarily a huge fan of this album. Not to say that it's terrible. I actually bought it because of two mellow ballads...."You're The One" and "I Love You More Than Ever" -- two beautiful love songs than seemed to fall through the cracks from record buyers. (Larry Willis' funk smash, "Heavy Blue" is also worth a listen as well.) But it seemed that the group was trying to hard to commercialize their sound and the tracks just seemed bland an not as powerful as the BS&T sound of their earlier releases."
