Finally someone took the opportunity to re-master the brilliant LAKE (art-rock de luxe) this double cd holds their first three albums. This is an absolute must own for friends of art-rock bands such as : Charlie/10 cc/City Boy ...to name a few! While the few mentioned bands are English, this fine band hails from Germany even though harboring some British musicians, first and foremost the excellent lead singer: James Hopkins-Harrison, but also Geoffrey Peacey (keyboards and vocals). This sadly underrated great band could have (read: should have) been huge on a world wide scale!! Other than the aforementioned brothers in arms, there are certain musical hints here and there to Supertramp and Kayak! So a superb melodic band with excellent delivery, superb instrumentation, great vocals and topnotch compositions ! Plenty of earhangers in the shape of greatly composed tunes with superb hooklines (I dare you not to hum along, with quite few of the songs on this perfect package). so in short great pop with slight progressive tendencies scattered all over and vocal arrangements that Crosby, Stills and Nash would be proud of!! Again, this fine release are certainly a must own for aficionados of said genre and style! For those of you, not in the know, don't expect thundering heavy guitar chords or bombastic drum and bass foundations! This is pure clean and well tempered melodic music, brimming with excellent songs! Let mention a few of my fav tunes here, in no particular order: "Time Bomb" / "Welcome To The West"/ "See Them Glow"/ "Love Is The jailor"/ "Scoobie Doobies"/ "Glad To Be Here"/ "The Final Curtain"/ "Jesus Came Down". Great value for your money, go on treat yourself!! So BGO, do we get the next albums as well?
