A thunder clap to last a lifetime,
This review is from: Introspective (Audio CD)
Introspective hit my ears in November 1988 as I drove alone all the way from Frankfurt to Berkshire in my boss's very fast car. Belgium flew past at about 120mph. Yes, that was the 80's. He had left "Introspective" in the CD player and instantly I fell in love with the whole theatricality of it.
Driving in the bleak of Stonehenge a few months later "Left to my own Devices" threw a surprise. Skies were grey and brooding, all was quiet around and then.... the heavens launched a massive thunderclap synchronised with the music, at exactly 54.5 seconds into the track. I thought the Hand of God was going to descend and pluck me from the road. Eerie to say the least ...Imagine the desolateness and a khaki coloured light in the air and listen from the start.
The fugual "It's Alright " ranks in my personal top 10 tracks of all time. Addictive to this day. perhaps best enjoyed on your own driving or with some Sennheiser wireless headphones, volume no limit.
21 years later I still foist it on others when they come around...no Norah Jones sweet easy listening. Maybe I am still an 80s girl at heart...

Thanks for writing what is the best review I have ever read on Amazon. Your writing is stunningly good and has made me decide to get this album, as a lot of their discs are sadly unfamiliar to me. Time to change all that and go s h o p p i n g !
