2 stars As Good As Gold (EP): 2 stars

To be considered part of The Masquerade Overture 'As Good As Gold' as stated for 'The Masquerade Overture' review this is far too short a version one assumes this was for radio play not that I recollect it being played. 'Bird Of Paradise' not Snowy White. Rather a mish mash of other songs elements of 'Paintbox' and 'Good as Gold', amongst others rather disjointedly put together. It never really sound coherent. 4 minutes in the listener is teased with what might be something going somewhere, but it never materialises. 'Midnight Running' more in the style of Pendragon, a solid chunky rhythm section supports the vocal together with a Mike Oldfield sounding guitar. Probably the best of the tracks on offer here. 'A Million Miles Away' a short track with vocals over lush keys together with some backing vocals. One can't help feeling that this belonged to something else and was removed?

Not quite what I had hoped for? sorry only 2 stars

huge | 2/5 |
