Chris Flynn Art in America"
A rare find.

"I like Art In America. Sure, it's not "real" prog, but a prog inspired pop. In a sense, Art in America parallels ELO or maybe KLAATU. It's actually a rare thing to find a group that does pop music this way. It's a shame they only put out one album. Most groups put out at the least, two records. Art in America is unique in making Harp as a main instrument in a pop rock band. This gives them a unique sound. If you like the Buggles and were not totally turned off by 90125, then give Art In America a try."
Best of all worlds

"This album was a breath of fresh air in 1983 and it still is, here in 2003! I cannot believe 20 yrs. have passed!
For any of you considering buying this (I read today 7/25/03- that this CD is being re-mastered w/MANY bonus tracks from the aborted 2nd album as well as live tracks from this one); if you like Beatles, Yes, you will love Art In America. They cross the two. Progressive with sweet hooks, melodies and arrangements. The weakest song is "If Only I Could Fly", but it's still a fine, catchy song. It's all upward from there! This is a GREAT album.
This band should have been HUGE. Too bad the music industry is what it is... Long Live Art In America!"

A very good, very forgotten 80's album

"This self-titled album is a memorable slice of 80's rock that never managed to make an impact on the charts back in '83. This trio has a sound similar to Rush, but the addition of the harp gives them their unique sound. The title track is superb (I remember the video). Other highly recommended tracks are "If I Could Fly", "Undercover Lover", "The Line" & "Won't It Be Strange". Glad to see that the Renaissance label is reviving a lot of forgotten 80's artists that otherwise would never see the digital light of day."
