3 stars Great looking vocalist with a somewhat thin voice. This is probably Curved airs best LP the first two tacks are by far the best on the album and possible could have made a killer single release. Ultra-Vivaldi showcases Ways Violin. There is a sexuality to some of these songs that has a wee edge but as with all things Curved air is handled in a pleasant way. Live they were a competent outfit and Sonja had a real presence I suspect that helped their sales a bit. Side two has a little experimentation with vocals through a synthesizer but frankly its not a worthwhile experiment and should not have been included. I liked this Record then and I still think Melinda (More or Less) is a great song and a good arrangement. Curved Air will not tax you overmuch and they are unlikely to become your number one all time favorite band but Phantasmagoria is a worthy addition to a good prog collection.
