2 stars I think this is where the magic ended.

What can I say about "Cunning stunts"? First of all I have to say it was not a great impression the first time that I heard it (or the second, or the third, or the fourth...), they had created something completely different of what they used to do.

It's not a terrible album, it's not a whole disappointing experience like Pink Floyd's "Final cut", but still, I think they could created something better. There's a song in this album (I don't remember which one exactly) that sounds like Earth, Wind & Fire but without the trumpets, and the first one sounds like something that John Lennon would have made, but not Caravan.

"No backstage pass" is the closest they got to their classic style, that and some moments of "Dabsong conshirto" (that could have been a great song if had last 10 or 12 minutes). In general, this is a Classic Pop (I couldn't even say Classic Rock) album. Maybe if instead of CARAVAN they would have changed their name to something else, I could say this is a great album.

I don't think I can give it even three stars, so two.

Sorry, guys.
