1.0 out of 5 stars oh dear!, 12 Sep 2012
This review is from: Air Cut: Remastered (Audio CD)
Having revisited this album again after nearly 40 years, I can only say time hasn't improved it. Lets say at the off the I am/was a big Curved Air fan seeing them many times in the 70's and still play the first 3 albums regularly. The problem with Air Cut is down to the departure of Francis Monkman and Daryl Way, unfortunately dear sweet deluded songstress that Sonja is, lost her quality control, resulting in appalling lyrics and overblown instrumentation, having said that you cant fault the musicianship on the album, which is excellent. I remember 'Sounds' reviewing it at the time and describing it as (I was appalled at the time 'not My Curved Air') "banal and naive"....I couldn't agree more. Stick to 2nd album!

I have just listened to a few samples of Aircut on Amazon.
Like yourself, I am a great first three album fan, but the departure of the main core of Curved Air finished it for me.
Aircut is not a bad record, musically proficient, the new entrants to curved Air were, but none of the tunes that I listened to had that ear grabbing spontaneity that Situations or Back Street Love have.
So agree 100%.
