2 stars RTF's second album Light As A Feather is a very light jazz album that will probably sound completely unrecognizable from the guitar-oriented fusion they became popular for. This is an album of dreamy and smoky jazz-club music that sometimes borders on easy-listening.

The entire album is fairly traditional so don't expect faster-then-lightening virtuosity or challenging innovation, a couple of tracks like Light As A Feather are very pleasant and feature warm soothing female vocals, others are more upbeat and swinging. 500 Miles High is one that is a bit more lively, but the dominating easy going nature of the music doesn't really turn it into an engaging listen.

I believe some tracks have enough qualities to please regular jazz fans or prog fans that are in a pleasant summery mood, but generally I would rather recommend this to lovers of Latin world music then rock fans.
