5.0 out of 5 stars Great BJH Album 22 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
Certainly this is different to earlier BJH but it has a quality not captured again until "River of Dreams". All the tracks stand out as good BJH but it really is John Lees at his best. John is really the most underated musician of the last few decades. This album is really a classic. Apparently the first album ever released on CD (?) If you are a fan then you must get it! If not then you must give it the time of day as it is truly beautiful especially "Paradiso dos Cavalos" a true classic bar none in the prog era.
Buy it and enjoy!

By Jonathan Rowe VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a huge fan of Barclay James Harvest. True fans admire them for their prog-rockin' 70s output - material which always struck me as lacking either the arthouse credibility of Genesis or Yes or the hard-riffing cojones of Rush or Wishbone Ash. The 80s marked a change of direction for the band and, losing their progmeister-in-chief Woolly Woolstenholme, they produced a string of polished pop-rock confections which sold commendably but failed to securely the loyalty or affection of longtime afficionados. Most of these recordings now languish in back catalogue oblivion, which is a great shame because they stand up remarkably well - in some ways better than their more high-concept prog cousins from the 70s. This album in particular is a lost gem and if you can track a copy down, hold on to it tight. It belongs in your CD collection.

The spine of this album lies in three tracks - the opener and closing two. "Fifties Child" features exhilerating orchestrations and clear-voiced innocence. It's a paean to the ideals of the baby-boomer generation, now bloodied but unbowed (at least, according to BJH) in the wasteland of Thatcher's Britain in which the album was composed. In fact, the song functions as a hymnal tribute to childhood dreams and hard-won hopes, regardless of your birth decade. It's a treat.

The final two songs are similarly touching - or sugary-sentimental, depending on your perspective. "Paraiso Des Cavalos" (Paradise of the Horses?) is another celebration of youth - this time a nostalgic anthem to a glorious coming-of-age on a holiday in the Algarve. The details are opaque, but the song still captures something of the intoxication of youth and the giddy but imperdurable bonds of adolescent friendship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC ALBUM 19 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would rate this as one of B.J.H.'s best albums.A fine mix of beautiful ballads and more rocky numbers make it a most entertaining set. John Lees beautiful ballad's (like 'Fifties Child' and 'Teenage Heart') are well complimented by the different style of songwriting by Les Holroyd.An excellent album for any music lover's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars BJH further entrenched in AOR 23 Jan 2012
By Lebrad
Format:Audio CD
I understand that much of their 80's material would not endear itself to BJH fans from the early and mid 70's who crave their orchestral prog sound and style. However, many rock fans got into music in the 80's and developed a craving for AOR, which for me is classic rock distilled to it's most melodic form (and yes complete with synth / guitar combination and soaring chorus).

Fifties Child took me awhile to get into but it does reward your perseverance with flowing and subtle melody after the stirring orchestral intro.

Looking From The Outside is pure uptempo AOR in the Journey tradition. Les is in special vocal form over a melody you cannot tire of. The guitar weaves around the stabbing synths to the extent that you'll dust off your 80's Kansas discs ! Legend has it that the alienation expressed in the lyrics were a symptom of Les and John not getting along very well at this stage. Thankfully they were able to continue working together for the next 15 years despite whatever differences lay between them, or we would have been cheated out of some of the most melodic rock the 80's had to give. While I'm not one of those who hopes for a reunion tour, I do quietly wish they would get back on speaking terms. It's sad for 2 guys who created such incredible rock together for so many years to remain estranged. Here's hoping ...

Teenage Heart is fairly strong, could have rocked a little harder but certainly not filler.

High Wire is the album's hardest rocker with a killer hook and a great bridge. The chorus melody hits you hard after a few listens, not unlike April Wine or Saga of the same era. Stunning Les track.

Midnight Drug is for me the strongest John track here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent BJH Album This Time Around 14 July 2012
By Mike C
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have this album on vinyl and every album before it so my comments will be somewhat bias. However, I do know quality when I see & hear it, and BJH hit a high standard of work for this album. Firstly, the presentation of the CD is fantastic and it looks great as a package including the nice booklet, also the photographic quality finish added to the surface of the disc itself. It is really nice to see the amount of care put into this release. The music sound is superb (like the vinyl) as the opening couple of minutes start with orchestral splendour. Also I would say the stereo separation throughout the album is pure joy. The songs themselves are all good to great compositions. Stand out tracks in my view are Fifties Child, Teenage Heart and Ring of Changes. A minor criticism I have is that the booklet notes concentrates on the situation at the time surrounding the making of the album. This is fair enough but I would like to see something more conceptual about the songs themselves...maybe the songwriters providing some insights behind the words. However, this does not detract from a great product.

All in all this is a standout album which will grace your coffee table magnificently if you decide to purchase it. The packaging alone makes you want to play it. Excellent value from an under rated band who consistently produced albums to a high standard. If you like this album try the excellent Octoberon, Other Short Stories & Time Hounoured Ghosts which are all full of great, highly listenable songs.
