3 stars 01. Mediterannean C Richard Strong of the songs have always been simple to piano, but sensational in terms of melody. And here in the introduction to the disk that you have. Then a beautiful array of synthesizers and beautiful saxophone of Mel Collins, remember what the sound of Floyd, but we are talking about one of the guys who helped build this sound right? Although the melodies used by Rick here has a melancholic tone used by the different Floyd. The guitars are very well orchestrated by Snowy White (no, he is not the opinion of Gilmour despite much).

02. Against The Odds A lovely guitar melody begins with the piano. The charming voice of Richard always first appears, it is strange at the beginning of Pink Floyd he always did so many voice, the star of a few Wright was disappearing in the band). Belo chorus, charming, unassuming, quiet and serene. If the disc was not produced by itself I would say that Richard had been Alan Parsons, as the timbre of battery it is certainly the same as the boy was wearing the band.

03. Cat Cruise Truncated, full of melodies reverse and full of tension, as is usually a soundtrack. The presence of the saxophone has only lead to more melancholic music. The bottom of Larry Steele is always discreet and 'escort' the melodies.

04. Summer Elegy Virtually the disc is composed of pianos, and this reminds me a little Summer Of'68 (think it was good that even the intention) .. Sensational double the vocals, as only he could do, and did very well, is not a great singer but a great melodist and has a very nice voice .. The land always remind me pretty much the style of Gilmour, which only makes me more encucado and he was sure that even if the guitars recorded this disc. And speaking about it, if not the timbre of the battery of feet together I swear that it is actually Reg Isadore Nick Mason, too, because the style is exactly the same. I have a huge impression that the guys have a force that, while Roger wrote The Wall and The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking.

05. Waves A 'q' of ELO here, some sounds the boxes, a phrasing of a saxophone and bass bacana always very well played by Mel. Most of the track is controlled by the sax and the keyboards in the background, which has always been an ability to Richard, the work song and not just by him, is what the music for and not what he wants. This is sensational.

06. Holiday A very beautiful ballad that tells the story of a day / a weekend off, away from all the filth and doideiras in the world, two in a distant and beautiful world. Two souls swimming in an aquarium. A beautiful passage of the guitar solos and synthesizers are united only an agreement to return for Mr. Wright, his vocal melodies and sad. It is almost an invitation unforgettable, who loves going out with / like and get away a little. End repeated until the message is understood, with an unexpected and very cool solo at the end.

07. Mad Yannis Dance The layers of keyboard is increasing little by little, with the guitar melody in a hypnotic way, a little synthesizer and bass and join the same melody, a guitar and a percussion always painfully little to the bottom, also mark the saxophone presence. A waltz strange, this is it!

08. Drop In From The Top A groove, with Hammonds raised and full of 'land guitarrísticos'. More of a jam session same studio. Still does not have good melodies' behind the cameras.

09. Pink's Song Do not know from where came the idea of 'A Song Of Pink', but if it was not inspiring muse of Roger I do not know anything. The voice once again has the stamp of quality Wright, the guy has a good taste and both are simple melodies but an unparalleled beauty. This track is a mixture of sadness and beauty, with a further contribution of flutes of Mel.

10. Funky Deux How could no longer be, as well as the name suggests, a 'funk session', this time having enough space as the style calls for the low Larry Steele appear. Indeed it is a psychedelic funk full of keyboards and to fund some good HAMMONDS. And a ton of good and heavy soils of saxophone and guitar. A jam of mind 'lively' end it in style.

Most of the disc is instrumental, but not one of those instrumental full of musicians and a very righteous touch of soul, what we have here is instrumental in the line 'New Age', calm and beautiful songs with melodic passages and sad.
