3 stars Robert Jan Stips is the founder and key composer, keyboard player, and singer of the early Canterbury band, SUPERSISTER. Once he left the band around 1974 (to join GOLDEN EARRING--after their world-wide hit album, Moontan with the monster hit, "Radar Love") it didn't take long before the band disintegrated. Here, in 2019, Robert Jan reveals a collection of songs that are either holdovers from that early 1970s period of his life or recent compositions that demonstrate how deeply the SUPERSISTER spirit has held steadfast within him. Many of these songs are refreshing in their upbeat, fun, and beautiful melodies, reminding one of just how special those 1971-73 Supersister albums were.

1. "I Am You Are Me / Transmitter" (4:44) (10/10) 2. "Memories Are New IV" (3:26) (8.5/10) 3. "For You And For Nobody Else" (7:59) (12.5/15) 4. "Sister Talk 1" (0:44) (4/5) 5. "Max Eco" (3:00) (8.25/10) 6. "Hope To See You There Again" (5:28) cool song that plays out like a cinematically emotional Post Rock song. (9.25/10) 7. "Yellow Days" (4:31) (10/10) 8. "Sister Talk 2" (0:35) (4.25/5) 9. "Next Door Movie" (3:12) another nice soundtrack song (8.5/10) 10. "Cuckoo" (3:58) live one room stage recording? Too goofy--though I like Robert Jan's narrative in the second minute. (7/10) 11. "Hope To See You Again" (1:24) (5/5)

Total Time 39:01

B/four stars; a welcome contribution from one of the early leaders of the Canterbury sound and a nice addition to any prog lover's music collection.
