2 stars 2.5 really

Andromed Girl comes on market in 1981 and is a totaly a pop album , but again not bad, really. The synthesizers, the plastic keybords conquer all pieces from this album, the digital atmosphere of pop music from early '80's is here. After Gates to infinity, a new member arrives in Earth nad fire team, no one then an ex Focus musician - Bert Ruiter - the bass player, who was and is married with Jerney Kaagman for more then 30 years, he gives another dimension to bands sound, maybe sometimes the best member of the band.. So, musicaly speaking what we have here, besides the pop arrangemenst , is a piece of 12 , the title track, I have to say that this strack is excellent, the voice of Jerney Kaagman is top notch, but aswell the arrangements are very good, quite symphonic, with string arrangements and all the ingredients to be a good piece, the keybords and guitars, all are perfect here, nice surprise, definetly the highest point of the album, and one of their better pieces from entire career that is for sure. I've always liked the voice of Jerney Kaagman - she has a smooth roughness in her voice, but very good fits perfect in this kind of music, even in the more pop one is ok. So another ok album, not a very good one, but has some moments s worth to be listened, not the best album ever released in that period, but not the worst for sure.2.5 , that means has some good moments in places, even is more pop then prog album, but again not their worst, I remain to Gates to nfinity to be the most irritated album they ever done so far.
