3.0 out of 5 stars Lucky Chick Goes a Bit Too Nice, 16 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Leprechaun (Audio CD)
This is one Chick Corea's mid 70's cross-over themed albums - much in the spirt of The Mad Hatter and RTF's Musicmagic.
I used to love this back then but I'm not so sure it's stood the test of time.
Based around the world of the Leprechaun and his private dream world of dancing sprites, fairy queens and imps, it's got a really distinctive sound and some kind of narrative going on.
Beautifully played throughout, as you'd expect by anything from Corea, it's all a bit too nice. Also. when it was made, the battery of keyboard instruments played and referenced here (specially on Imp's Welcome), was all the rage - just check out the contemporanious work of Herbie Hancock. Today, this looks/sounds a bit naff.
Gayle Moran's distinctive vocals (heard throughout) are, well, as one of the tracks is called, soft and gentle. Mind you, they suit well, Reverie, a short piece that still sounds good.
Maybe I've just moved on.

Much as I agree with many of you comments I have found that really listening to this album pays off. It has some amazing ideas in it if you listen closely. Still not his best but I'd have given it four stars myself.
