2.0 out of 5 stars Glossy eighties production, second rate songs, 28 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Language Of Life (Audio CD)
This is probably the weakest of all the EBTG albums. The songs aren't as strong as previous albums
and the music is rendered hollow and soulless by the dreadful eighties sounding production.
The addition of the contemporary "jazz" musicians doesn't help. Where Miles Davis and Chet Baker
may have added some edge, Michael Brecker and Joe Sample just soften it up even more.

Wow, second rate songs... The person who wrote this review must have cloth in his ears. The album is timeless precisely because it doesn't have an eighties feel, or for that matter any other decade.

I agree. Despite having a few stellar tracks, this is probably my least favorite EBTG album.
