This review is from: Novella (Audio CD)
Actually, I own the vinyl rather than CD, but it still gets the occasional airing. The baroque splendour of Renaissence is classical in style and by metaphor (see my review of Scheherazade), though the longeurs of some tracks may put off buyers more used to the 3-minute single.
But stay with it - the nine-and-a-half minutes of Touching Once (is so hard to keep) brings not only a fine and subtle melody, sensitive lyrics and even some excellent sax. While some songs fade in the memory, that is one track vividly imprinted in my memory from the first time I heard it - a rare achievement.
