3 stars Tony Levin is great bassist, first of all associated with Peter Gabriel and one of King Crimson's line up. This, his second solo album, is warm and pleasant one. Its sound was a bit unexpected for me.

Nothing reminds technical, cool and angular sound of King Crimson there. Jazz-rock, quite rounded, melodic, soft, sometimes even romantic and melancholic. Very often missing its jazz element and just sounding as simphonic prog. Some great names in supporting musicians team (Marotta, David Torn, David Sancious, etc). Really very intelligent, almost comfortable music. Without being cheese.

Possibly I expected more technical, energetic, faster sound, may be even aggressive one. No, I hardly found it here. But what I found was excellent equivalent.

Not a masterpiece, but very competent and pleasant music, could be interesting for very different listeners - from Levin/KC fans till soft jazz rock lovers.

1 stars Tony Levin's second album? The followup to the mellow, but not bad World Diary? With Jerry Marotta, David Torn, Larry Fast and David Sancious? With Levin on the cover, in a wife beater, wearing his flying fingers, looking like he's ripping into his bass? It's gonna be great!

Oops!

Levin got it completely bass-ackwards. Instead of wild, inspired bass playing, we get an album suitable for the Kenny G fan. The only things slightly of interest, and only slightly, are the two pseudo-ethnic pieces (like Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel et al would make when they ran out of good ideas), Bone & Flesh and Pillar Of Fire, and the vaguely Pink Floyd-like Utopia.

This album made me afraid to buy and of his subsequent albums.

2 stars Watery Eden...

The second solo release from prolific bass player Tony Levin and features contributions from Jerry Marotta, Warren Bernhardt and the California Guitar Trio.

The Good: Bone & Flesh, Gecko Walk and Pillar of Fire are all pretty cool.

The Bad: I've always been a fan of Tony Levin's work with King Crimson, Peter Gabriel and Liquid Tension Experiment but have never really appreciated his solo work. Whilst Waters of Eden is one of his better releases, it still falls somewhere between soothing and bland and is a far-cry from the intricate virtuoso bass playing which is so often associated with him.

The Verdict: Pleasant but nothing more.

4 stars AMAZING 'PAPA BEAR' I don't know if there's another bass player who is more influential and important than Tony Levin. I know for sure there are plenty of talented and high skilled bassists, but I really doubt that there is one with the experience, versatility, charisma and importance of 'Pap ... (read more)

5 stars "Waters of Eden" differ from "World Diary" quite a lot, but Levin has succeeded in maintaing the excellent level with which he started his solo career. What changed is that Levin himself composed all the tracks here and almost all the tracks feature bass/stick as the main lead instrument. The c ... (read more)

4 stars "Waters Of Eden" has a much more personnal feeling than its predecessor "World Diary" (Tony Levin wrote all the songs this time). More traditionnal instruments are used this time: bass, drums, guitar, piano/synth. The music - more rock oriented - is much more melodic and less technical. I woul ... (read more)
