I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

RATING:


Background
This is a West Coast project from keyboardist Claes Corin and singing maestro Goran Edman. Considering the lack of West Coast releases these days, this one sort of slipped by the radar, but we managed to snag it before it disappeared. This is actually velvet smooth stuff, but veers too much to the pop side. Unlike the genre, this is not as over-produced as some other well know albums, and this reason alone, probably lends it some charm. The stripped back nature of it all, with ambient piano and subtle synth layers is an ideal accompaniment to that late nite latte, the stray blonde in the red dress, along with the warm and inviting jacuzzi. Yeah right! A few guests turn up to play, but overall it is the Claes and Goran show.


The Songs
If you're into the groove-laden line followed by the likes of Kevin McCourt, Bill Meyers etc, then these boys will strike a pose for you. A couple of gentile intros undermine what are beautiful tunes; namely 'Keeping You On My Mind' and 'Live On Love' - both similar in structure. 'You'll Be Hearing From Me' has a funky underbelly, 'Black Widow' is the closest thing here to Toto, while 'Good Luck Charm' crosses paths with Denander's Radiaoctive material. The accelerator is never pressed too hard to the floor, all laid back stuff.


In Summary
Not as unmemorable as 2004's Crossfade album, and thankfully there is a faint spark of electricity to generate a modicum of interest on my part. OK, if you were wanting to conduct sleep experiments on insomniacs then this might make a good companion, but all humor aside, I'm sure that is not what Messrs Corin and Edman were gunning for. We'll see what they deliver second time around. Probably more of the same?

Toto anyone?

Doesn't matter, great it is and Goran Edman once again shows that he can sing just about anything, it always turns out right in the end and sounds honest - I really like this album.

PS. There is an early version of this album available (or was), I have it to and there is two songs that differs from this edition!

Personally, I think Goran Edman sounds better on those Street Talk albums.
