3 stars Second album of this forgotten band, named Turbulence released in 1980and aswell their swansong is almost the same with the predecesor. Same manner of composing , same progressive rock aproach, near to mainstrem but with good moments I might say. All the musicians stood still face the previous work minus Jack Lancaster froom sax. Well , with the bras arrangements mius, the album sounds even more on rock side, with some progressive moments here and there. The sax was given a great atmosphere on first album and definetly a more progressive aproach, this time, the album in tinged with more edged rock not far from MMEB , Glorified magnified era but of course minus blistering Mann's keybords, at least is how I see this album. The keyboards are missing here, but as a whole the album is a good one again. Pieces like title track - Turbulence , Fallen star or Strange worlds are excellent examples of great musicianship and inventive moments, the instrumental passages are awesome here. From mellow to more edged progressive rock, the musicians did a good work, again Roger's voice and guitar is good, nothing really brilliant but enjoyble most of the time. It took me more then 3 years to find this album, for sure more unknown and more hard to find then first one, but after all I found it and I' glad I have it like the first one. So, another 3 stars for Aviator, one of the bands that for some reasons never made it worldwide even, their live shows were very exciting and had excellent instrumental passages that shows a thier true talent. Good album after all.
