A mellow, relaxed 70s / 80s compilation of mainly Adult Oriented Rock,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yacht Rock (Audio CD)
This compilation does not really throw up any surprise choices for this genre of music, but rather goes for the safe, comfortable choices of music familiar to lots of people. Which is no bad thing, given that most of the time you will probably be playing this `in the background', as mood music or whatever.
As always, I would suggest that you read through the track listing for all three CDs, to see if it really is something that fits in with your tastes. Also, as this is available as an MP3 download, listen to the samples of the tracks, just to remind yourself of the tracks. For those of us who cannot be bothered to create our own compilations any more, albums like this, at this sort of price, are a sensible purchase.
It is more weighted to American artists from the 70s, but works none the less. One nice surprise was to find Morning Dance by SpyroGyra included, who are a group that are probably little remembered now. This compilation is not just AOR tracks but more chilled out middle of the road tracks as well, giving an easy listening selection.
I just can't bring myself to give it 5*, as it does not totally `hit the mark' for me, and is missing a few 'definitive tracks' but a decent effort for all of that.
