5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, articulate and brimming with life and confidence
War Dance is simply a (mostly) instrumental masterpiece. It has 4 exceptional musicians in the shape of John Hiseman (Drums), the founding member and sole survivor from Colosseum (mark 1), Don Airey (keyboards) who went onto Rainbow, John Mole (Bass) a respected and flawless bass player and a certain Mr Gary Moore. Colosseum II pull out all the stops on this their third...

3.0 out of 5 stars I have to be in the mood
As an impressionable teenager, my mate Dave and his elder brother introduced me to a whole new musical spectrum. They dragged me out of my short lived flirtation with punk and opened my eyes to a world full of Rush, Yes, Alan Parsons Project, Mike Oldfield etc etc. On a midweek trip to some secondhand stores in Cambridge they convinced me to buy Softs by Soft Machine,...

War Dance is simply a (mostly) instrumental masterpiece. It has 4 exceptional musicians in the shape of John Hiseman (Drums), the founding member and sole survivor from Colosseum (mark 1), Don Airey (keyboards) who went onto Rainbow, John Mole (Bass) a respected and flawless bass player and a certain Mr Gary Moore. Colosseum II pull out all the stops on this their third and last album and it is stunning. A progressive and some might argue self-indulgent finale it includes one of the first recordings of Gary Moore's vocals 'Castles'and finds them all at ease in the progressive instrumental bracket A must have for fans of great guitar playing, dynamic drumming, classy keyboards and brilliant bass. Listen on headphones for that 70's stereo, Pink Floydian, lights out feel.

Why, why, why is great music like this so hard to find these days? I remember someone lending me a cassette of Electric Savage and I was blown away by Mole, Hiseman, Moore and Airey's tight superb jazz rock fusion. I have finally got my hands on this CD and it was worth every penny I had to spend! Top quality and after all, who needs great music like this when you can buy Katy Perry CD's in ASDA!!! Obviously joking.....

This review is from: War Dance (Audio CD)
As an impressionable teenager, my mate Dave and his elder brother introduced me to a whole new musical spectrum. They dragged me out of my short lived flirtation with punk and opened my eyes to a world full of Rush, Yes, Alan Parsons Project, Mike Oldfield etc etc. On a midweek trip to some secondhand stores in Cambridge they convinced me to buy Softs by Soft Machine, In City Dreams by Robin Trower and War Dance by Colosseum II. I had certainly come a long way in 18 months from The Ruts' Babylons Burning to listening to this album and thinking "hmmmmmm not bad". I listened to it a lot in the early 80's but now, when I listen to this again, it definitely sounds like music that was "of its time". However, if I suddenly find myself in the garage and in a prog mood, a couple of tracks do make it onto the iPod playlist. On the whole ...musically accomplished ... but Messrs Airey and Moore went on to far greater and more memorable projects. Its a 6 out of 10 for me (hence the three stars).
