2 stars Klaus Doldinger (from some moment of time "Passport" is just his brand-name used for tagging of him and different supporting musicians) never was very experimental or unexpected musician. But if in early 70-s and even in 90-s he still could play attractive even if not very complex fusion, 80-s were a real disaster.

This album is illustration: music recorded is danceable polished synth-pop, even usual Klaus sax sound is transferred to faceless synth-horns. Melodies are simple, and even some funky bass groove in places can't help. Heavy moments possibly added as spices, but all elements are such a stereotypes!

To be honest, I prefer best Candy Dulfer compositions to what I found on this album! Soundtrack to endless touristic documentary or late evening local radio music from early 80-s.

Better avoid!
