a NICE safe CD, good but nothing special
on 21 November 2014
I'm sorry not to agree with the star rating of most here, but it does come close to four.
As for the music, the rating has nothing to do with the strength of the songs, but more the fact that to me although they are strong well written, I feel that they are very middle of the road NICE safe songs. This does not district from there quality or construction, they just seem a tad Asia in a world that's moved on. That is to say in a world where everything is moving on this harks back to passed happenings. As already said here are many nice safe songs with little highs and lows to distinguish it. Not quite Boring but try's hard to be. Searching is the one stand out song that gives this release a reason for being.
I am sorry to go against the system, but I suppose music is a very personal thing, and although I do like this it does nothing special to me. As for the star rating I do tend to be harsh on scoring in general and to achieve a four means great album and this isn't great but good. Five stars a rare and only for classic albums to me.
