Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars I guess that there was no better title for this album, even if the band would have called it quit before this ugly recording.

There is absolutely not a signage of prog music on this album. It is frankly a very poor experience to go through tracks like Yes I Need Someone (but it is not the only one).

The majority of the songs have nothing to do with their earlier work. It is an awful journey into some extremely poor AOR (Africa At Last) or just weak songs overall.

This album should just not be appealing to any proghead really. It is a poor continuation of disgusting press next songs all the way through. At times, I feel like being tortured when I voluntary listen and write a review for such an album.

All of this because I once decided some two years ago to review the catalogue of a band from A to Z (whenever possible). I have to say that the exercise is useless with this Beggars Opera album.

This is a pretty [&*!#]ty album which features dreadful disco beats (Atmosphere, Bad Dreams). These songs have of course NOTHING to do with prog music (as the bloody and well named Bad Dreams). It is another press next song from this album that only holds such type of songs.

The best way to apprehend this album is to ignore it. Even one star is too much of a rating. I am really confused to have listened to such crappy record from a band who released some true and very good progressive recordings.

The band should have been brought to court to have released such type of poor work. One star of course (which is still one too much).

1 stars I feel like crying! Luckily that the album of the series "Noble Price" are budget line, otherwise... Oh yes, because "The Final Curtain" is an album that I would not recommend to anyone. Reading between the songs there is something good: "Yes I Need Someone" (good rock) or "Now You're Gone" (hon ... (read more)

2 stars "Just for collectors, enthusiast." This BO's last record (1996) contains new versions a couple of their old tracks and some new ones. Music style is a bit difficult to describe, it varies between R&B, AOR, prog. In my opionion this is quite nice record, this complete my BO collection.(and this was c ... (read more)

1 stars I have several of the early recordings by Beggar's Opera. They are great and especially Pathfinder is a true masterpiece. As I found out that there is a new album by the band (and someone has given it a five) I offcourse had to get hold on to it. I have seldom been more dissapointed! As you ... (read more)
