3 stars I listened to this album last night for a change after listening to heavy and complex stuffs like Somnambulist (a review to follow), Frogg Café, Weather Report and Van der Graff Generator. I purchased this album long time ago in the eighties with the assumption that it would sound like the only song that introduced me to Passport: "Jaddoo". The song was really great: a fusion jazz-rock music in relatively fast tempo demonstrating great combination of sax and keyboard with dazzling drum work. But this album is different - it's much more softer than Jaddoo. It's a relaxing experience if you can enjoy a jazz fusion kind of music. I can think of this album like a marriage between the music of Japan's Casiopea, Pat Metheny and Spyro Gyra. I might be wrong but that's what I can tell in brief about "Blue Tattoo" album. I can hear a blend of good guitar work by Kevin Mulligan and sax work by Klaus Doldinger. Even though this album is not my cup of tea, but it's a good one to have - especially for a change. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild! GW
