PacificOceanBlueAug 17, Location: Amersfoort, The Netherlands. YostAug 17, ARK and Johnny Vinyl like this. A truly amazing song with that great synth solo opening. A very bold statement in a rock oriented music world. Loved it, but only listened to it on the radio. I forgot about Steve Winwood for a few years, until he re-emerged in the Dutch charts with Higher Love. This time I bought the single and played in on repeat for weeks.
But without any charting single after Higher Love, I forgot about him again. Fast forward some 10 years and I come across the Chronicles compilation CD. Being unsure if any of his studio albums are worthwhile I buy this to learn about his other tracks. I enjoy the album a lot, but don't buy any other album. Some years later I learn that Arc Of A Diver is a well regarded album, and that he played everything himself.
Learning that it was also released by MFSL, made me hunt down a copy. This album blew me completely away. First, it's almost unbelievable that he did everything himself. The album truly sounds like a band playing. Secondly, he uses some really cheesy synth sounds, but somehow managed to blend them in with the rest of the arrangements and make it sound good. Thirdly, he uses weird song structures and some goofy lyrics, but the result is great.
As said before, While You See A Chance opens with a great synth solo defying rock song rules and radio friendliness. It takes 56 seconds before any singing starts. The song goes through several movements and contains a lot of instrumental parts between the singing. Love it. Arc Of A Diver uses some really cheesy synths over a lush midtempo groove. When the singing starts, it sounds like he starts in the middle of the song, instead of at the beginning.
When the chorus finally arrives, and that takes a while, the song somehow snaps in place. And the lyrics are gibberish. You'd expect this to be a total failure, but somehow the Album) is jaw-dropping awesome. Second Hand Woman sounds very normal in comparison to the first two tracks, but it contains great synth solo lines that make it a very enjoyable track. Slowdown Sundown starts as a well-timed resting point in the track list.
The double time middle part makes it stand out from the slow song crowd. And some subtle organ playing is the icing on the cake. Spanish Dancer is a nice track, but I always wonder why there is no Spanish guitar in the track or more flamenco influence.
Again the vocal melody feels counter intuitive. And again it works. The track features some nice use of dynamics, with a mix of louder and softer parts and a mix of denser and sparser arranged parts. It constantly changes character, meandering through the arrangement.
Night Train is another highlight. It uses a Prince-like combination of a tight drum computer beat with groovy bass and funky guitar parts. Absolutely brilliantly executed, it just flows and flows. I can set this on repeat and enjoy it for hours.
The second half also contains a nice guitar solo. After all these great tracks, I think Dust is a bit of a letdown. The synth is just to cheesy, and I don't like his singing on this track. The arrangement and production are different from the rest of the tracks, as if this track was meant for another album. Report this album or account.
