Beautiful Scarlet
3 stars Solid album.

Most of the songs on here follow the sound of Epic Forests 3 minute long songs. One song, Dollars (8 minutes) is purely instrumental and really delightful music. It plays an old westerns theme then heads into jazzy goodness lead by guitar and returns to theme but at half the tempo to create a really majestic sight. I think this song shows the wasted potential of Rare Bird and this album. I wish Your Lost off Epic Forest was included on this album as it could have marked a lovely change from that Early British sound of Rare Birds first two Albums towards Jazz Fusion/Funk.

Overall this is a solid album, if you like Rare Birds previous album then I'd recommend this for sure, particularly the song Dollars.

Beautiful Scarlet | 3/5 |
