3.0 out of 5 stars Dwindling creativity towards the end...., 8 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spyglass Guest & Time And Tide (Audio CD)
Greenslade's first two studio albums, Greenslade and Bedside Manners are Extra, were unique in that here was a band based on drums, bass, and two lead keyboards. The music was in-demand psychdelic blues and jazz. Sadly by the time Spyglass Guest was released, the creative oomph had left the band and they were stretched for new material, even having to do a somewhat pointless cover of Theme For and Imaginary Western to fill the album up. Time and Tide saw a further descent into pop-rock anonymity and much much shorter tracks, many more of them with Lawsons strange vocal stylings - it sounded like a collection of bits that hadn't been considered for the first three albums. Both these albums are here on their own CD, tho the runtime of each means they could easily have been squeezed onto a single CD with room to spare for "extra" b-sides or demo versions. Curious...... Ah well, at least Greenslade stands the test of time and still sounds fresh and interesting, perhaps more relevent than many modern bands from their keyboard approach to rock music. Worth having in your collection - but check out their first two albums also on this dual release series, they're five stars each!
