The Eye
4 stars This recording follows almost the same pattern of their previous one "Third", however we cannot consider that both albuns have the same quality. "Fourth" is an amazing Soft Machine's production. As the other one mentioned, this recording has lots of experiments, jazz/fusion characteristics, good works with bass, saxophone and keyboards (drums are better worked in the previous album) and Hugh Hopper appears as a great composer, making five of the seven songs of the album. But it doesn't bring the same energy of "The Third". You don't feel it the same way, mainly in Elton Dean's Fletcher's blemish, which we perceive an exagerated experiment, focusing too much the saxophone, although the music is not bad.
The Eye | 4/5 |
