2 stars Shadowland's female cousin

These four songs are so far the only songs I have heard from Caamora. These songs are written in a style very similar to that of Shadowland (which is another one of Clive Nolan's many good bands). All four songs bear a distinct Nolan flavour, both musically and lyrically, but it is clearly the Pop side of Nolan, rather than his Prog side that we have on display here. Even if it is hard not to recognize Nolan's typical way to write songs, there are also aspects of this music that puts Caamora apart from most of the other things he has done. The most obvious difference is the female vocals by Agnieszka Swita. She has a nice voice. Clive also sings some passages himself which further strengthens the similarities with Shadowland in which he was the lead vocalist. His voice blends nicely with Swita's.

As indicated by the cover art, piano is indeed the main instrument in this music. But thankfully this is not just one of those pure piano and vocal sessions, but also incorporate drums, bass and (electric and acoustic) guitars in the right places. However, the four songs all lie in the three and a half to five and a half minute range and there are almost no signs of any real progression in these songs. What we have here is a small selection of well written, but rather basic, Pop/Rock songs. Like anything Nolan is involved with, this is quality music and the production values are high. But needless to say, he has made so very much more impressive music elsewhere.

I would recommend this EP only to hard core fans of Clive Nolan.
