3 stars Brian Auger Oblivion Express fifth album under this name named Straight ahes, is to many listners his last good album, after this one he will enter on another teritory living some mixed up reviews. To me this is a good album, maybe and for sure not so strong as the debute under this name Oblivion express, but the album delivers some quite fun and entertaing to listen. Brian Auger nick named "the godfather of acid jazz", did a good job some of his keyboard parts are truly great like on opening track Beginning Again or Bumpin' On Sunset , my fav track on this album with excellent guiatr and keybords arrangements. The music is jazzy upbeat combined with slower moments, never boring, maybe not some spectacular moments, but pleasent all the way. I also like a lot Brian Auger voice, fits very well in this context, warm voice and well sung. So, a full 4 stars, some parts are great, some are only good, in the end a pleasent album for sure, at least for me, his unique keybords arrangements make him a legend in this field for more than 40 years in this zone.
