Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is the kind of release that will hardly "knock your socks off" but will return to your attention when you know the kind of mood it requires for its full enjoyment.

For starters this is not groundbreaking material nor a bombastic release, opposite to that "CROSS & QUINN: COLD SKY BLUE", 2016, is a slow paced, heartfelt (sometimes a bit too much, like track 4), emotional, nocturnal and romantic journey, which travels through very difficult grounds, the 80s' style like ones, or better yet, the recreation of the most refined and rescuable parts of those.

And believe it or not David Cross and Sťamus Quinn pull it through with extreme decor, which is almost a miracle. (At times you could bet Robert Fripp is guest, but you will lose the bet.)

As told, once you know what to expect, it turns out to be quiet pleasurable to listen to.

Anyway, it beholds some great moments, nevertheless not exactly flawless as a whole. If expecting Jazz or Fusion this is the wrong place to look for those styles.

***3 PA stars.
