4 stars The story of the reunion of Curved Air is well told in other reviews of this album, so just let it suffice to say that this is the original lineup, minus Robert Martin, the bass player. But since the bass player changed on each of the first three albums, I suppose that it's fitting that the position here is filled by another new member, Philip Kohn (who does an excellent job, by the way).

The songs are all from the first three albums, and benefit from better production (at least than the first two), and spectacular performances. Francis Monkman has a great keyboard solo on Propositions, and Darryl Way's violin shines on Young Mother and Vivaldi. And I happen to really enjoy Sonja Kristina's exuberant performance throughout the record. I like her voice much better without the over-emphasized tremolo she used on many of the studio recordings.

I would recommend this album as the place to start when exploring Curved Air.
