2 stars 2,5 stars, really. Recorded soon after the Air Cut album sessions, Lovechild was only released in 1990. I was eager to get this CD, since Iīm a big fan of the band, and I really like Air Cut, even though it was quite different from what the band had made before. Well, I must say I was a bit disappointed with Lovechild. Of course I was not waiting for a masterpiece, but most of the songs here sounds too much like the Air Cut leftovers than a īrealī album. Small wonder why this project was shelved for so long...

Still, there are good moments. Sonja Kristinaīs voice is beautiful and she is the main reason this album works. Lovechild and Seasons are the best songs, both real fine display of great musicanship and inspiration. The musicians are outstanding of course, but Eddie Jobson is somewhat subdue here (maybe he was already thinking about leaving). The songwriting is the down side of the CD: nothing here, even the best cuts, have the power and the beauty of the previous work like Easy, Metamorphosis or Armin. Itīs not bad record, far from it, but you should not expect anything special. It would have made a great extra bonus CD for an Air Cut remaster CD release.
