The sonic caveats which accompany Collector's Choice's other Curved Air reissues remain in force; the historical truth that what sounded timelessly groovy in is not necessarily so finger-snapping three decades later remains unimpeachable.
The opening "Marie Antoinette" sets the scene with lovely melody, impassioned vocal and a terrifically understated band performance which complements every syllable uttered by vocalist Happy Sea Summer - Various - Summer Orange Ocean Kristina.
The bridge into revolution "the rabble have gone insane" is breathtaking -- history lessons should all sound this good, and the amazing thing is that the album has only just got started. And the four-part, side-long title track switches moods, effects, and even genres jazz, mariachi, and the avant-garde all get a look in to create an dazzling soundscape which allows every members a moment to shine -- without once stepping into the treacherous swamps of solos and virtuosity.
This was the original Curved Air 's final album -- by the time the accompanying tour was over, only Kristina and bassist Mike Wedgwood himself a spanking new arrival remained to carry on the good work. As farewells go, then, it is magnificent, the band's grandest hour by far.
