3 stars A fusion album by non-fusion band

Jet Lag is PFM's departure from their earlier pure symphonic rock phase. They enter the territory of jazz rock fusion with this album. This is the beginning of the weaker form of the band. Jet Lag is a step back from their latest album - Chocolate Kings. The vocals of Bernardo Lanzetti are not enough pleasing again. Here in Jet Lag the vocals seem like a bleating of a lamb. As it's typical for italian bands, in Jet Lag again has been included lush classical influence. The songwriting isn't of high quality. There are a lot of flaws in the first part of the album. The second part is definitely better. It contains more intensity and outlined musicianship. As whole, the album hasn't been listened by the right men, because it's jazz rock fusion album made by a symphonic band.

Highlight in Jet Lag :

Traveler - memorable and fascinating

Rating of the first half: 3 stars

Rating of the second half: 3 3/4 stars

Final rating: 3,3 stars
