music for the listener,
By A Customer
This review is from: Klaatu / Hope (Audio CD)
This reweiw is based on the '92 cd version of the albums "Klaatu" (1976) and "Hope" (1977). This strange cross between The Beatles, Pink Floyd and others is listening music in the purest form. Being a huge fan of The Beatles, it's a delight to hear songs like "Calling Occupants...", "Hope" and the 3-part piece "The Loneliest Of Creatures/Prelude/So Said The Lighthouse Keeper". On these songs they manage to go all the way. It's without a doubt an album of songs to enjoy again and again because of the music-for-the-sake-of-the-music attitude shining through. Even if the Beatle-like sound is very thick at times, I for one enjoy it and embrace it, 'cause despite being 'only' 26, I love that sound and period and I think that today the music scene suffers from lack of balls and nerve. So if you're a music-listener with a soft spot for the late '60s/early '70s you'll love every minute of this album. GO GET IT...you snooze you lose!
