Review by Warthur
4 stars The medieval-styled cover only heightens the parallels between Turning Point's work and jazz fusion as practiced by Return To Forever, though once again Silent Promises delivers something a bit more than that. With touches of a Canterbury-styled "voice as instrument" approach courtesy of Pepi Lemer (who would later be the Spice Girls' vocal coach!), the album largely continues the approach of the band's debut album - indeed, the most convenient way to get this, outside of the 2012 CD rerelease in Japan, is as part of a 2009 compilation on Vocalion bringing this together with the debut album, and the two go together so smoothly that you can't tell when one ends and the other begins. That's positive in terms of consistency, but also suggests that the band didn't have that deep of a bag of tricks - perhaps explaining why this was their swansong.
