2 stars This is what they call a cd single, and the chance is little that you will see a second hand copy on a cd fair. But in case you do, and you check the PA Archives on your mobile internet connection, as you should, here's what it is.

Crazy Fool And Dreamer is a good melodious pop / rock track, which has a good instrumental middle part which is more like symphonic progressive rock. It has an excellent keyboard performance and quite a good lead guitar. You will find it also on the cd version on Coda's first album Sound Of Passion, though.

Central Station : that's a filler. Don't bother about it.

Reverberating Sounds : this has a structure like Van Dyke Parks' album Song Cycle: there are a lot of musical atmospheres which come and go like the waves of the sea. This is the most interesting track of the album, because here you see the building blocks of the Coda albums, and you see what an enormous potential this band has. But that's all there is to it: it's just as the title says: reverberating sounds.

This cd single has been made in less than one day. Is it possible to make a high quality recording in that period of time? Not really, but that's how things can go. If you want to check out Coda, please, don't buy this cd single, because it has little substance in itself. Buy the albums instead. This is just for the collectors and fans.
