3 stars Compared to Moraz' awesome and excessive debut sols album 'The Story of I' (or simply 'I'), 'Out in the Sun' does not reach the same level of originality and splendour - but it still is a good album. More 'pop'-oriented and with shorter (and more structured) songs, but at the same time it also demonstrates why Moraz was selected to be Wakemans replacement in Yes - his keyboard work is all over and spices up otherwise ordinary melodies, making the album a really enjoyable listen. The album was made just after his departure from Yes, and it is obvious that he was participating in the making of Yes' 'Going for the One' album - snippets of 'Awaken'may be heard on the opening of 'Time for change', if you listen carefully. The instrumental songs ('Rana Batucada' and 'Kabala') as well as ther over 9-minute long 'Time for change' are my personal favorites - but there are no reasons to skip any of the others song, for that matter. Recommended for Moraz- enthusiasts (they probably have it already), and well worth leending an ear to for the rest of us.
