3 stars An obscure album from an even more obscure British act.

Changes is the second album from this British band. It is also their final album before the band vanished without a trace. It is also an album that balances on the edge between great and really bad.

The basis of the music here is the British rhythm'n'blues scene from the late '60s/early 70s. The vocals is vailing female vocals who uses here voice more like a jazz instrument than a as a mean of uttering words. On this album, at least. Perhaps not in her daily life. Let's hope not. Anyway, her voice is effectful and put to good use on the music here which comes across as a jazzy, proggy and slightly avant-garde'ish version of British rhythm'n'blues. The other instruments are various woodwinds, bass, tangents, guitars and drums. The songs are pretty long and well developed too.

The quality........ well, I guess this album is very much a love/hate album. I personally cannot be provoked in any directions. A song like Thank Christ For George is a great piece of symph proggy fusion. The rest is good songs, but nothing more.

This is a good album, but do not except a Gentle Giant clone here or even excitement from this album. I award it a meek three stars.

3 stars (barely)
