5.0 out of 5 stars ALBUM OF THE YEAR from the giants of AOR...., 11 Feb 2006
This review is from: Falling in Between (Audio CD)
Stunning in every way - the quality, in every aspect of "Falling In Between", is difficult to put into words unless you have actually heard it. Just when you thought there were no more surprises from a band who have been together for nearly 30 years, this release gives you a gentle kick between the legs and gives your head a massage of the finest rock you are ever likely to hear.
The production, mainly overseen by Simon Phillips, is simply superb, and will get you finding new things with every listen.
Each member of the band, including "new boy" Greg Phillinganes, has never sounded better than on this recording, and that is probably due to the fact that they have spent nearly a year creating a masterpiece which they are, and rightly should be, proud of. Steve Porcaro is here in abundance, adding clever touches to most of the tracks, and Joe Williams makes a triumphant return to duet with Luke. Nice touch.
For me, there are no stand-out cuts on this album, 'cos each track is an absolute GEM! From the brutal opening of the title track to the funk of "Let It Go", the mesmorising "Bottom of Your Soul" to the sheer adrenaline of "Taint Your World", the musicianship and enjoyment is clear. Album of the year without a doubt - and that's any year!
