2 stars Camel without the humpbacks.

Pi2 is a socalled supergroup from Spain and this is their debut album. The sound is pretty lush, drenched in keyboards as it is. The sound is pretty modern, the musicians are flawless. Camel has been mentioned. Put in Jan Hammer too and some modern jazz bands you find in soundtracks for American TV series.

Herein lays my big gripe about this album. The music here is nice, lush and nice again. Nothing offensive. It is solid background music for ironing, cookery, repairing your computer and planning a summer holiday. Trying to listening hard to this music to find 100 nice words to write about it is a harder task. The music is going nowhere. It is repetetive. It is dull. It is less toothless than a snail. There is in short no contents on this album. Just some plodding on one or more keyboards over some neo-prog like melodies which is not anywhere as good as Camel's output. There are some good pieces now and then. But there is not enough of them to go around. I am sorry, but this is not my cup of tea.

2 stars
