4 stars Robin Taylor's new album,released in 2012-KIND OF RED-proves-once again,if necessary- how intelligent and adventurous prog music should sound today!Definitelly,the author of this album knows very well the fact that music should be always intriguing and full of surprises- that's why this excellent new album got everything to be catchy and interesting!An excellent production-a big and crystal clear sound for some excellent musical ideas for an album without any weak points!Definitelly,the music is not at all an easy audition-you should have some progressive music experience and be an open minded person to dig seriously the music of this pretentious album-but in the end,the satisfaction of an audition of a wonderful musical material is guaranteed!FIRESTONE -the opening track-is giving to the listeners-the precise musical direction of what is following on the album!Great progressive music in the Rio- avant-garde sense,with some KING CRIMSON influences and -obviously-with the touch of genius of his author-Mr Robin Taylor-a musician in continuous search of new ways of musical expression of his tremendeous talent and endless positive inspiration!I really like the fact that Robin Taylor is going on this album to explore some uncommon soundscapes and is offering to the listeners some wonderful musical images!The album needs many auditions to be fully understood,that's for sure-but any new audition is coming with something new and unexpected!SALON BLEU and TORTUGAS got something almost mystical -a great vibe of magic and fascination-expressing some great musical images!The sax sound is wonderful too,the drumming work is impressive -but overall there's this unbelieveble complex and diverse guitar and keyboard sounds from Mr Taylor himself -a great contemporary musician! Hard to find the musical peak of this album-all the material is very solid and united-a great album under all aspects-a great musical journey for everybody!You are kindly invited!4.5 solid stars for me!
