The Runaway
2 stars White Ladies, a great album which is just not for me...

This album is a concept album, with tracks following one another, a concept similar to Nektar's Journey to the Center of the Eye, but I have to say, Trace's White Ladies does not compare to Journey to the Center of the Eye....

I like this album, it has a lot of good songs, but more bad songs in total. The album sounds sort of loose around the last 6 tracks, which is not how an album should sound, ESPECIALLY a prog album.

I really like songs like Doubts and Legend Part II, but songs like Meditation and Conclusion aren't all that great. This album has it's moments, but not always, which is sort of dissappointing.

I have always liked Rick van der Linden, he's a good musician, I'm just saying it's sad seeing him play on this album.

I thik the sound could have been better, as the vintage sound of 70's dutch prog is very appealling to me, but on this album, it sort of let me down and out.

Albums can be good, even great sometimes, but this does not fit any of these stats here...

2/5. Too many bad tracks, too little good tracks, no matter how good they were.

The Runaway | 2/5 |
