Cat Stevens started his musical career in the sixties, and has since transformed into one of the most important artists in history.

Format: Audio CD
Perhaps the biggest surprise this album presents is its relatively hamfisted production. The delicate, sometimes fragile air of early recordings has long gone, replaced by an almost basic, home recording feel. Stevens uses a few gadgets, including the polymoog. He experiments on the instrumental, 'Was Dog A Doughnut,' and employs an annoying percussion loop on the otherwise charming instrumental, 'Kyprios.' Nevertheless, the material in the first half is melodic, imaginative and consistently engaging, with 'Old Schoolyard' an obvious potential hit. 'Life' has glimpses of the old sound and 'Killin' Time' is surprisingly rocking. The second half isn't quite as memorable, but 'Izitso' is more substantial than might be expected.

Cat Stevens was in a funk.

After the near-disaster of "Numbers," released in late 1975 and only was liked by the most hardcore of Cat fans, he decided to go back to what made him popular in the first place - good, catchy, solid, well-written music that anyone could instantly fall in love with.

The resulting album became his comeback, and propelled him further in the atmosphere than even wanted to be at. He was becoming increasingly more and more fearful of performing in front of crowds, and even one of his songs reflected those very fears.

The album is very simplistic now, even though it probably was the most electronically and integrally-forward developed music for it's time. Cat himself played no less than a dozen singly different types of instruments for the album's production, and along the way was helped by no less than the legendary Chick Corea, who also assisted in playing several types of keyboard himself.

The album's content is the real winner: reminiscing about loves and opportunities lost in the past, worries about everything and himself as he slides towards the future, and along the way walking with eyes filled with wonder and awe at the universe and all it has to offer between those little moments in between.

10 songs adding up to less than 40 minutes of music, but each song has it's own world and meaning, but is also connected by Cat and his sheer artistry in creation. Only one other songwriter/performer can match him in this type of genius, and that's Stevie Wonder(but personally I'd have to put Stevie first here... sorry Cat):

Format: Audio CD
Izitso, issued in summer 1977, was at the time considered a return to form for Cat Stevens, who had (from a commercial point of view) lost his way somewhat in the previous few years. It mostly comprises concise, melodic pop songs which are essentially what Stevens' reputation was built on in the early 70s (and indeed, in a different style, in the late 60s). The hit single, Remember the days of the old schoolyard, is one of the most instantly appealing tracks on the record, but with the exception of the two instrumental tracks (one of which is rather silly and pointless) every song is very pleasant, and I come back to listen to the album at least as often as any of Stevens' others. The musical style and production is sophisticated compared with his early albums, and the new remastering really does justice to the recording. Although perhaps not quite as memorable as his very best work, it is probably the best of his last few albums and I would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of buying some of Cat's lesser known records.
