3 stars Manfred Mann is one of my fav key player from prog, he always sound unique. Now, this album Solar fire, i must admite is not one of my fav MMEB albums, i always liked the period after this one from The good earth to Somewhere in Afrika. Not a bad album but, the piece who everybody praised here the Father Of Day, Father Of Night, a Bob Dylan cover to me is boring at some point, to long and nothing is happend there. To me is the worst piece of the album, but the best i find Saturn, Lord Of The Ring / Mercury, The Winged Messenger and the funy one Pluto the dog, the rest are also good but nothing fantantisc in my opinion. This album has plenty of enjoyable moments from spacey prog and keyboard dominated moments to fairly straightforward, and i think 3 stars is fair, i can't give more because i find this album far from Nightingale & Bombers, their masterpice. Still a MMEB classic.
