Man... I've just come to the end of a four-year long library music binge.. I think I've found my next obsession through your blog!! All of this is GREAT!! Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Thank you for the nice comment.
We are friends.
Helping each other is natural for friends,right ?

yeah, I agree with Harri, this is really nice, I know it's a bit like pop new wave, but the songwriting is very very strong, and there are nice progressive touches throughout. Completely underrated album, should be better known without a doubt!

Thank you very much I will give it a try

Thanks Shige さん
I imagine there were quite a few good soft prog work (like this one you introduced) around 1980.
It was a pitiful time that evolved new prog looks relatively weak and pop-oriented comparing to classic big-named 70s prog while new wave heat also killed the limited existent margin of some bad-luck meteoric artisits who played this type of style.
I like this one for their diversification in music elements, particularly the jazz fusion part, and the very nice melodic-prog pace.
Thanks for digging out good buried gems one after another for mates with congenial tastes.

It reminds me a lot of the netherlandish old masters galaxy-lin with the overproduced sound, pop production, and strong songwriting as well as the style of singing, though they of course were years earlier.

The sides of this tracklist is vice versa. The right one is this:
A1 What Made You Change
A2 Natassja
A3 Chimera
A4 No Time For Tears
B1 Moving Up Fast
B2 Eagle Flies
B3 Outing To Spain
B4 Masquerade

Mit said...

I am very interested in your opinion.

>>>The sides of this tracklist is vice versa. The right one is this:

Really ?

I have the LP and wrote the tracklist from it.
and it is vice versa of yours.

Very strange ....
Do you have the LP ,too ?
