Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
2 stars 2.5 stars really!!

With Holdsworth and Winter gone, what was to be expected from Tempest's Living In Fear, especially being replaced with only one musician, albeit the good (if not excellent) Olie Halsall (though he and Holdsworth did play a few months in parallel in the band. But as good a musician as Halsall is, you can feel all of the weight is on his shoulder, him the newcomer, and he's more or less handed the keys of the truck, the guitars and the microphone as well as writing 5 of the 8 tracks on the album, bassist Clarke handling three more. Whatever lyrics are from Hisemlan The Man. And Halsall being like Holdsworth of jazz roots, once he gets into Tempest, it's one of the least jazzy album's he's played upon, proof that this was Hiseman pushing them to write always rockier tracks. Recorded just a year after the debut, LIF sports a close-up of the Gorgon Celtic sorceress, but it doesn't sound much like its predecessor: all Colosseum parenting musical ideas are completely avoided.

Soooooo, as Halsall was in, you'd have expected the album to go back to jazz-rock realm, but it is actually the opposite happens! Leader John Hiseman is clearly on a mission and here, he's close to denying his old jazz tricks and treats, as we head in straight (hard) rock. You could still hear the old Colosseum in Tempest's debut, but here, there is almost nothing to remind you of it, as Halsall's tracks are average (at best) and Clarke's three tracks (sung by him) are little more than misses or fillers. Passing quickly over the Beatles' cover (not convincing), Clarke's Stargazer might have gone somewhere had there been more thoughts and ideas put into it. His other two tracks are the two longer ones on the album, and the almost-8-mins Dance To My Tune has a weird synth and bass duo that could've developed well had the group been more than a trio and later the guitar solo is correct. Probably the album's better track as the 6-mins hard-rocking Turn Around gets drowned in the mass of the album, in spite of a little more solo space. Both opening track on each side of the album are Halsall's, and they are questionable choices as they are short (actually, that's good in this case), almost brutal and way too conventional to arouse the proghead's interest. Clarke also sings Waiting For Miracles, but it's certainly not inspired, no matter how much Queen-like (non-Scaramouchka) chorus you want to include.

Tempest is certainly not Hiseman's glory hour, to say the least, and if both Tempest album are still nothing worth writing about, they haven't aged too disgracefully, either: they don't sound dated, but even then I doubt you'll really spin any of their two albums, this one even less than its predecessor.

3 stars Eager to please

With the major changes in the band between their first album and this one, their style also changed radically from a jazz rock orientated band to straight forward rock. Although Hiseman and Clarke remain from the first album, it's the late Ollie Halsall who dominates things.

"Dance to my tune" is the most prog track here, with some good guitar and fine synthesiser. The Beatles "Paperback writer" gets a real dusting down, becoming a heavy rock track, while "Stargazer" is a highly melodic Mark Clarke piece. Incidentally "Stargazer" was covered superbly by Clarke's brief Uriah Heep band-mate Ken Hensley on his "Eager to please" album, with a wonderful brass section ending.

There are at times hints of Free/Bad Company on the album, but little to link back to Colosseum. "Living in fear" benefits greatly from the multi-talented Halsall's instrumental work. Had they persisted, Tempest may well have gone on to find success. The market was however rather saturated with the style of music they chose to adopt for this album, hence such success would not by any means have been guaranteed.

Had the songs been generally a bit stronger, this could have been a much better album.

Review by Nightfly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Rock Progressivo Italiano Team
2 stars After a promising yet unspectacular debut, Living In Fear, the second album from Tempest saw major changes in the line-up leaving only drummer Jon Hiseman and bassist Mark Clarke from that incarnation. Allan Holdsworth had jumped ship for Soft Machine, who he would also only stay with for one album and Vocalist Paul William's fear of flying had cost him his place in the band. One man was to replace them both, Ollie Halsall, formerly of sixties psych pop band Timebox who were to transform into the more progressive Patto.

Living In Fear was a further step away from Hiseman and Clarke's former band Colosseum than even the debut was, ditching any traces of jazz and opting for a more streamlined rock direction. Halsall was an absurdly talented guitarist and he gets his moments to shine but fails to live up to William's rich tones in the vocal department. Despite the occasional inspired moment like Dance To My Tune featuring some cracking guitar work from Halsall the album smacks of the ordinary including a limp version of The Beatles Paperback Writer which suffers big time in the vocal department in particular.

It's certainly not a bad album, just lacking the song writing spark to lift it above the mere ordinary. Worth hearing though on the strength of the fine musicians involved but if you want to hear Halsall at his most inspired I'd recommend you go and check out the first two Patto albums. 2 ½ stars.

3 stars Replacing Allan Holdsworth was a major problem to Tempest. Ollie Halsall was a great guitar player, but Holdsworth is brilliant. So Tempest lost a bit of technique, feeling and creative power when Holdsworth left the band, which makes this album inferior to the first. However, on vocals, Hals ... (read more)
