5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice New England Back Then & Still Is...., 3 Jun 2014
This review is from: New England (Audio CD)
Certainly one of the bands top albums and along with their debut 1970 album Pilgrimage and Argus the album New England for me was a much welcoming release from the guys back in 1976.

The album kicks off with the blistering rocking pace of "Mother Of Pearl" and then settles down to one of the finest tracks of the album with "(In All Of My Dreams) You Rescue Me" a lush track with purely lush interplaying between Powell and Wisefield. Lovely bass lines too from Turner and the bass is super throughout this album from him. "Runaway" turn up the pace very well and is another fine rocking track.

"Lorelie" is another class track on the album and "Outward Bound" sees the familiar twin guitars working so well together and this is such a trade mark of this band and is quite a stunning instrumental track. The albums then settles down to a more chilled out pace with tracks like "When You Know Love" and "Lonely Island" and end off with a lovely little instrumental ditty with "Candlelight".

Certainly one of the bands stronger albums out of the many they have done over the years and for me an album I still play and get great pleasure out even now where into 2014, and I did buy this on it's release back in 76.

So it's certainly served as excellent value for money for my ears. To be honest I do not think the band could ever match what they did on their first 3 albums, and for me they was in a different field and done at a much higher level. But the album New England is certainly a cracking album and an excellent choice for those who have only recently got into the band, or if your looking out for some well cool chilled out rock.
