Review by Zac M
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars It's been a whle since I've posted a review, so I thought I'd go for another revew of a Sky album. Sky's fourth, simply titled "4: Forthcoming," contains only covers of some famous, some not-so-famous classical pieces, which are of course give the Sky treatment. There is little of interest for ths album unless you are an initated Sky/John Williams fan or you like Classcal-rock cross-over. While this isn't ther best album, it's still quite accomplished.

The album starts off with a cover of Khatchaturan tune, and the Sky style actually goes really well with it, very nice classical guitars, just what you would expect from Mr. Williams. The second tune is probably the most reognized cover Sky ever did. "Ride of the Valkyries" is also one of their more embarrassing pieces. However, it says in the liner notes that it was meant to be a joke (yuppy humor I guess). "March to the Scaffold" is one of my favorite Sky covers and should be recognized by the average person. It's extremely well executed! "To Yeslasto Pedi (Theme from "Z")" is a nice Spanish classical guitar heavy piece, very catchy and enjoyable.

Sky also attempt a cover of a Romantic period piece, Ravel's "Waltz No. 2." Sky's version is almost a bit too easy listening, but not bad by any means and still a nice listen. "Fantasy" is one of my least favorite tracks (maybe because I'm not a big fan of Baroque music, dunno). Sky always seem to cover Bach tunes, but I guess that's inevitable. "My Giselle" is yet another Spanish piece, this time arranged by Peek instead of Williams and is less Classical gutar heavy, although it's still there. This piece seems to "rock" more than the others too. "Xango" is a Brazillian tune with nice tuned percussion from Tristan; it's a bit repetitive, but still pretty enjoyable. What do you know? Another Spanish piece is next! It's fairly forgettable, but again, not bad. The last piece is an interpretation of a Hoagy Carmichael tune, and as cheesy as it sounds, it's surely one of the better tunes on the album.

I wouldn't recommend starting here for people interested in listening to Sky, go for the first two albums instead. Like I said, this isn't their best, but it's still quite enjoyable, 3.5 stars.

1 stars An album that, at the time, sounded like it had been made by frightened rabbits.

SKY'S response to relatively poor sales and critical reviews of Sky3 (after the huge successes of their first two albums) was to retreat to territory in which they felt most comfortable; that is, the comfortable rabbit- hole of reinterpreting the classics. However, they not only selected the wrong material, they played conservatively, with musical excellence completely overshadowing any sense of playfulness, or even emotion. This album sounds as cold as the shoulders of the critics and public turned to its release.

The original works were not meant to be easy-listening. But SKY'S dead-handed approach make them so, depriving listeners of anything the music really has to offer. Ravel and Wagner, for example, ought not to be subjected to this!

If there are any SKY completionsists out there (apart from myself), make this your lowest priority.

3 stars The music of SKY can be described as light classical music with some vintage rock style. You might refer it to the bands like Ekseption, Focus, Fresh Aire, The Enid or Flairck. Of course they are not 100% alike but the all base their compositions on classical music and develop them further with some pop, jazz and rock elements. All of this can be predicted as the guitarist John Williams was trained with classical method. For me personally SKY 4's music flows naturally from one to another with excellent combination of electric as well as acoustic guitar that enrich the textures of the music. Tracks like "Fantasy" (3:14), "My Giselle" (4:36) and "Skylark" (3:10) are good ones from this track. "Skylark" combines acoustic guitar work in its simplest style with bassline and piano.

You might be wondering why this band was featured here at this site but when you observe further the composition, you might find subtleties that lead you to a conclusion that this band has some prog elements worth to mention. Keep on proggin' ..!

2 stars Apart from scintillating harpsichord work and a general penchant for interpreting obscure (to these ears) Spanish pieces, this is a disappointing follow up to the more energetic "Sky 3". It occurs to me that this is SKY's "Works Volume 2", a mishmash of sendups with a veritable who's who of original composers and a testamenet to the influences of our erstwhile heroes, but ultimately failing to rouse or inspire even an infinitesimal proportion of that which original audiences must have felt.

Some of the chosen material is just wrong from the start. Not much can be added to renditions of "Ride of the Valkyies", "March to the Scaffold" or "Waltz No 2" (Ravel) but Sky tries anyway. Not to say that all the more esoteric pieces are successes - "Xango" sounds like the worst that TANGERINE DREAM could muster on their worst day, and "Skylark" utterly lacks the personality that one would expect in channeling Hoagie Carmichael. It's only on the playful "To Yelasto Pedi", the brooding and ALAN PARSONS like "My Giselle", and, to am lesser extent, "Fantasia" that the inferred artistic objective of the disk attains some semblance of fruition.

By now we are clearly in the realm of fan-only releases with SKY, if in fact any such individuals even exist anymore. Talent and professionalism galore, but a combination of poorly chosen templates and an insistence on playing "inside the box" ensures that few repeat spins will be forthcoming.

3 stars A more classically attuned album than previous ones. This is Sky at its tightest and most professional. Although lacking the driving rhythms layed down by Tristan Fry in Sky and Sky 2, it also leaves behind the self indulgent such as Herbie Flowers tuba follies. This album really moves away ...
