Rod Argent has composed a host of songs throughout his long career and his gift for creating beautiful melodies seems as potent as ever, as these new ones are some of his best. I have just received this album and already this week have played it five times. They are mostly love songs, and Colin Blunstone has the perfect voice to sing them. That breathy vocal perfectly suits many of the openings, but his is a very strong voice that opens out as the songs develop and no note seems too remote for Colin to hit, which is particularly noticeable on the re-working of his old hit "I don't believe in miracles", the one song on the album that Rod didn't write. It was written by Russ Ballard. I think this sounds better than the original version.
Oddly enough the song I found the weakest is the first track which has been released as a single, "In my mind a miracle". I thought the fifth track "Time to move", the other rocker on the album, much punchier. Probably still not a single though in the current market.
I liked all of the other tracks though which is unusual with any album, and in particular there are four which are stand-outs for me. "Memphis", "I want to fly", "Wings against the sun" and the last track "Look for a better way". All could be issued as singles in my opinion with a chance of capturing the public's and maybe the radio producers/DJ's ears. Beautiful songs which have a timeless feel to them. I would like to hear these played on radio.
There is a jazzy funky song called "South side of the street" which I found very infectious, so there are a good mix of styles, but it the complex melodies on the ballads, Rod's piano playing and Colin's wonderful voice that linger. A 21 piece orchestra has been added on many of the tracks which adds a much bigger sound than has previously been heard from The Zombies. Fabulous album.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Far As I Can Hear 1 Aug 2004
By M. Ash VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A bit of a risk purchase this one, having only ever heard a couple of early Zombies songs before. The gamble paid off.
No need to write too much here as much of it has already been said by other listeners. The standard of musicianship is incredibly high - Blunstone's vocals are in the Paul Carrack league and Rod Argent's keyboard playing is excellent. What I particularly like about Argent is that he has a great technique but never runs round the keyboard simply for show - it all fits with the music.
A very enjoyable release which deserves much wider exposure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent record, treasure it 2 May 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Colin Blunstone, possessor of the most extraordinary singing voice to emerge from these shores in the last 40 years, and Rod Argent, a real musician's musician and very gifted songwriter, are back together recording under the Zombies name for the first time in some 35 years. This record is the result, and it is actually remarkable. These guys are 58 going on 59, and are out on the road in white vans, signing records for the fans like they were kids again and clearly loving performing, and the live band of Colin, Rod, Jim Rodford on ace bass and backing vocals, Steve Rodford on drums (it's like watching Zack Starkey and Keith Moon all at once, he's a blinding player) and the drinking man's guitar hero Keith Airey are the personnel for this album.
They may be touring and playing like they are 18 again, but the depth of life experience stamped through this record is what separates the men from the boys, and 18 year old kids touring in white vans being in a rock band for the first time are physically incapable of the performances documented on this record. The yearning of 'I want to fly', the lost love turning into bitterness of 'I don't believe in miracles' - this must be Colin's 4th or 5th recording of this Russ Ballard song, and it's the best yet. And my personal fave, the very knowing throwback 'Time to Move', Spencer Davis meets Ray Charles down a dark alley, a Fender Rhodes through a fuzzbox, and out of nowhere a grin-inducing Eddie Van Halen guitar solo. I defy you to review this record and not wiggle your bum in the seat when this song starts, it's a cracker. I also have to single out the great acoustic guitar work on 'Together', with its soaring massed vocal chorus, like Queen but without the pomposity, and genuinely moving.
I've probably said enough, you need to hear it and make your mind up. I love the record, I sincerely hope it will get picked by somebody on Radio 2 and successfully dent the charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait 1 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'As Far As I Can See' is the first Zombies album in many, many years, and for fans of the group (or of Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent), it's a must have. Colin and Rod have been playing together again for some 3 years, and during that time Rod has written a number of new songs with Colin's voice in mind. They have also gathered together an outstanding group of musicians including Jim Rodford (bass), who is Rod's cousin and the person who introduced him to rock and roll (as well as a founder member of Argent). Keith Airie is the ace guitarist featured on the CD, and Steve Rodford (Jim's son) is absolutely stunning on drums. This is the same group that has been touring the US and UK during late 2003/early 2004, and Rod believes that it is the quality of the musicians and their compatibility that made it possible to call this a 'Zombies' album, rather than simply a Blunstone/Argent collaboration.
The CD is a mix of ballads and more uptempo numbers, and without a doubt, the highlight is 'I Want to Fly,' a haunting ballad that makes the most of Colin's poignant interpretation and Rod's beautiful piano solo. The first single from the CD, 'In My Mind a Miracle,' is a piece of well-crafted white soul music, with the fantastic harmonies you'd expect from a Zombies tune. 'Time to Move' is also a great tune, reminiscent of the 60s, with a Beatles-y feeling. 'With You Not Here' is another winner - a lovely tune with a classic Zombies sound. The only song on the CD that has been previously recorded is Russ Ballard's "I Don't Believe in Miracles,' and this has to be the definitive version. If I have to be critical, I'd say that 'Southside of the Street' is the weakest song on an otherwise very strong album.
This CD presents the Zombies at their best: Colin is in fine voice, Rod plays his heart out in his classic style and there's even a 21-piece string section! Buy it and tell your friends about it.
