3 stars Renaissance first album from the '80's named Camera camera from 1981. Well this album is more popish than previous one Azure D'or from 1979 but also has prog elements. For many this album is a disaster, not to mentioning the next one, but for me is a good album all the way, really. Whjat we have here is very polished pop with prog leanings album, Camera Camera can pleases both sides of listners, the most pop orientated, and keep some parts for prog lovers. Anyway here Renaissance toying with new wave and is clear that the golden years are far behind, now we are in 1981 and almost every band who started in early '70's now palying something in between pop and prog, some of them even turned to be only pop, examples are many. Better this way, like this album than only pop. I must saying that all the pieces are strong, not a single one is a step back from previouses releases, the prog elements are in agood doze combined with pop ones, the voice of haslan is very good again, so what elese than a 3 star for me. Two new members arrived in Rennaissance boat:Peter Gosling / keyboards and Peter Barron / drums. They've done a good job here, but they don't shines as the predecesors. So all in all a good album, realy , nothing boring here and nothing bad, but aswell nothing really special, only a good album , who needs atention if you are a Renaissance fan. 3 stars easely.
