Here comes the seventies....,
This review is from: Blind Faith: Deluxe Edition (Audio CD)
I am a big fan of Cream Traffic and Family (the four members previous bands) but I was seriously disappointed by this. Half formed song writing,self-indugent musicianship and a whole heap of pretentiousness make this album an embarrassing example of the direction rock was taking in the early seventies. The only tracks anywhere near wothwhile are Can't find My Way Home and Presence Of The Lord. Otherwise, AVOID!

Can't say that I agree entirely with the review but some of the comments are appropriate, Acoustic Jam is long drawn out and quite frankly boring. It may well be technically brilliant but I expected more from these four. Drum solos by anyone are just plain boring, unless you're a drummer. Eric Clapton said that he wanted a fresh start after Cream but when Ginger Baker turned up hadn't the balls to tell him he wasn't welcome/wanted, maybe with a different drummer things would have been more relaxed and turned out differently. Historically interesting but not really a musical masterpiece but I would give it 3 stars rather than 1 . Unfortunately it's the bonus extended jams that let it down.
