With a handful of albums that I wanted to hear that are not available on CD or digital download, I decided a few years ago to purchase a USB turntable and the wanted albums on vinyl LP. Paul Brett's Interlife was one of them. Inspired by the previous review (by kenethlevine), I wanted to check this album out and now I have it my computer, personally transferred from vinyl.

This album is my first and only acquaintance with Paul Brett and while a pleasant listen throughout, I cannot claim to be very excited. The music is wholly instrumental and reminds of Mike Oldfield's and Gordon Giltrap's respective works. This means subtle, folksy, guitar-based instrumental Rock. Interlife also adds a Jazz flavour. A more recent purveyor of this kind of music is Collin Masson, especially his Isle of Eight album.

As I said, this is wholly pleasant and enjoyable music, but for me, it is a bit too easy on the ear and it works primarily as background music. It is music for hearing, but not for listening.

Good, but by no means essential or even particularly special or memorable.
