2 stars In this time every progrocker seems to wants to have a solo recording (Steve Hillage, Steve Hacket, Jon Anderson, etc, etc.) Tony Banks shows up with his first solorecord "Acurious Feeling". I got this record by accident as a gift of my supervisor who had picked up that I listened to vinyl records. Before that I didn't know of it's existance.

Tony Banks (for the one, who don't know (yet); he played the keyboards in Genesis) begins his record with some nice keys before the first song with lyrics. The vocals are a bit like in the Alan Parsons Project. Hmm, maybe the whole record is a bit like the Alan Parsons project.

Some keyparts are quiet nice, but the songs are a bit too happy and pop-music alike for me. The first three songs keep my attention but after these I become a bit sleepy. After side one I seldom listen to side two, because at that time I'm allready overloaded by the first side with popsongs.

What this record really needed was some more soulfull vocalist and some more darkened sound.

Well, 2,5 stars for this cheesy record.
