Good parts but least atmospheric from Bardens' bunch
Review written by John Fitzgerald, October 31st, 2004

Though slightly atmospheric, this is the weakest of the Bardens albums related to Fleetwood Mac members appearances. Mick Fleetwood is on the album's best track, the opening "China blue" which is a haunting moaner though they are using a clipped effect on Mick's drums here which makes them sound more machine like. Same could be said for his drums on the other track he plays on from this album called "You got it", an instrumental (though it has some title chants) which may sound promising but Neale Heywood's gruff guitar here sounds odd next to the tracks other instrumentation so I don't think it really works. As for the rest, "Puerto Rico" tries to be an urgent chirper but fails, the title track is bland slow to mid tempo drone, "Gunblasters" is the album's most rocking track, another instrumental with more growling Heywood guitars but those 80's type fanfare horn sounding keys parts are the worst parts of the track. "On the air tonight" is an OK up tempo echoy light track. Another instrumental is "A brave new world" which is a repeating monotonal keyboard plinker and though Neale's guitars try to get it going later on, they can't as the track just goes nowhere. "On a roll" is plinky pep that makes one wonder if it's busy lyrics are trying to compensate for all these instrumentals as we get three more instrumentals to end the album. "The last waltz" is up beat but has an "on hold on the phone" feel to it, "For old times sake" is a galloping piano piece (which is the best of all the instrumentals on offer to us here but even then, it's still not great) and "Scarletti" sounds like a solo piano recital piece. If you do decide to track this one down, you should leave it until after you can track down Bardens' more appealing efforts.
