Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Both songs from this single were taken from their "The Turn of a Friendly Car" album from 1980.

"Time", in my opinion, is one of the best songs from this band, and one of my favourites from them. It has very good orchestral arrangements, piano, acoustic guitars, drums, bass, very good lead vocals by Eric Woolfson, very good backing vocals (mainly by Chris Rainbow), and of course a very good recording and mixing (as always) by Alan Parsons. This song was a Hit single, and it is still played in some FM radio stations in my city. Despite Woolfson was not a very good lead singer, he sang several songs which became Hits from this band.

"The Gold Bug" is mainly an instrumental piece of music with some added vocals, good keyboards, drums, bass, and a sax played by Mel Collins. It has some similarities to other instrumental pieces of music from this band, particularly in the sounds of some keyboard parts (with "Lucifer" from the "Eve" album, for example).
