Review Summary: hot9 of 9 thought this review was well written
Sometimes late at night when you've been thrashing all day to rattlehead and superconductor, thrash can be too heavy and awesome for your tired ears, so when you just wana chill to smooth bass lines and sexy female vocals..you listen to this ***. If you dont already know (well you wont cos this is sputnik) Curved Air were a prog rock band from sunny england. What set these dudes apart is that the vocals are sung by Sonja Linwood who is a girl and a hot one at that, Renaissance were similar in this regard too. Apart from being hot, Sonja can sing real good too. Her voice sounds like an angel who doesnt care about the bad things in the world, she just sings her heart out and shows her true passion for music. The thing is she is really hot and i would *** her if she'd let me. The opening track Marie Antoinette is a classic, featuring great guitar leads and soft keys that make you feel fuzzy inside. The album flows very hard, after the epic opening track we are welcomed to Melinda (more or less) where we hear the soft acoustic sounds of Sonjas fingering skills, and thanks to great and crisp production you can almost taste it. After that short acoustic track we are slapped in the johnson with the wacky track titled Not Quite the Same, featuring a great walking bass line and trumpets of power. The title track is short and sweet, the chorus is probably the most catchiest thing ive ever heard, and its not gay either. Over and Above is the epic of the album, and while its not quite Songs of Scherergehreredaze level, its ***ing close. The trumpets go hard, and the drums go balls out and best of all the time sigs dont give a *** about your ***ty brain comprehending the brilliance.
Overall this is Curved Airs best album although Air Cut is very close. Basically this band is like Renaissance but not as good, which is awesome. The fact this album has 4 votes shows how gay this site is, but maybe you can help change that? Heres why you should: the instrumentation is top notch, the vocals are as beautiful as Sonjas mug and most importantly of all, the songs rule, very hard indeed.
