1 stars Further away from greatness

That I am not a fan of Peter Bardens solo career would be something of an understatement. But being a Camel fanatic, I needed to hear what Bardens achieved outside of that great band. 1993's Further Than You Know is the final Bardens solo album that I needed to hear and review for a complete familiarity with his solo discography. Like most of his other solo efforts, this one too is full of rather dull "adult contemporary" Soft Rock. There is little or no hint of anything progressive or remotely related to Camel. The opening number Sometime, for example, is in full-on Phil Collins mode.

Some of the jazzier, instrumental parts of the album are bearable easy-listening exercises, but they fail to grab my attention and they fail to leave any lasting impressions. The only highlight of the album is the pleasant Sea Of Dreams which sounds a bit like Mike Oldfield playing lead guitar lines over an electronic back-drop in the vein of Jean-Michel Jarre. This piece reminds slightly of Bardens best solo album, the electronic Seen One Earth. The rest of Further Than You Know is however best avoided.
