Review by Tarcisio Moura
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Like most people here on PA, I believe, I came to know this band through their performance on 1994īs ProgFest edition when they played most of Genesis rock opera The lamb Lies Down On Broadway. It was a very good show and I instantly became curious about their original work. And my curiosity was spurred even further by one reviewer that gave them a five star rating for their work (but did not write a review). It was not easy to find one of Giraffeīs only two albums (in this case, their second and last offering, released in 1988 through an independent label). Iīm still a bit shocked.

Clearly I was expecting for something very Genesis influenced and the like and I was quite surprised with what I found here: a mix of pop/techno/funk. Ok, The first three cuts are the most progressive of the lot, if I can call them that, some parts reminding me slightly of Peter Gabrielīs work around the time of So or Us. However, as the record goes on, the tracks go deeper and deeper into the pop/funk format of many late 80īs american artists, including those typical synth sounds and even some guest horns and sax solo like we hear in All Fall Down. Not bad songs per se, but for a band invited to perform on a prog festival? It is ok that the music here is quite sophisticated, but so is Mike & The Mechanics or Level 42īs and you donīt often see them being asked to play for a prog audience, do you? Just hear the uptempo funk of Waiting For The Rain or the delicate pop ballad of Holding On With Both Hands, perfect songs for people like Toto or Peter Cetera.

All in all a strange surprise. Itīs hard to figure out what Kevin Gilbertīs first major group was aiming at, other then the pop market of the time, of course. So if you were as curious as I was about Giraffe, be sure to listen to this record with atention before you buy it. And donīt be fooled by the first two or three tracks that have traces of something progressive. You might be very disappointed by the remaining tunes of the CD. I donīt like to give such a low rating for a band that I hardly know of, and Iīm still puzzled to what I have in my hands, but I should warn you all. Is it the same CD another reviewer gave it five stars? I doubt it.

A bad case of mistaken identity.
