Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
2 stars Shadowfax ended their recording career with an album slightly better than the previous "Esperanto". Just slightly. And to be completely honest, this band, aside from their first album, were just about the opposite of progressive. They recorded one great fusion album, and six years later reappeared as new age darlings on the insipid Windham Hill label. From that point on, they rejected excitement in their music, and created background sounds.

This album, like the majority of Shadowfax output, declines to have any character. Light, ambiguous ethnic beats form the backdrop of slight unchallenging melodies. The majority of the creativity went into the song titles, like Hey! Your Hat's On Backwards and How Much Does Zimbabwe?.

Get "Watercourse Way, don't bother with any of the others.
