Review by b_olariu
3 stars Jeff Cannata is an american musician beggining his solo career in late '80's. Before thent he was part in late'60 of jasper Wrath and in the '80's with Arc Angel. First album issued under his name was in 1988, followed up by second release in 1993 named Watching the world. I will talk about this second album in short sentences. I was little confused when I've heared this album, because I expected something else, I mean I know he combines in good measure progressive elements with AOR, but this time , at least on this release, is too much AOR and almost non of the progressive elements I've expected are present. It sounds like a cross between Asia and late'80's hard rock sound in parts. Ok, notbad, but some pieces are almost unintristing to say at least, AOR without any capturing moments. Two pieces stands as best here, Take Me Over and Over the line, excellent songwritting, great atmosphere, what else great pieces, the rest are ok but nothing realy exciting. Don't be fooled by the cover art, to think will be a serious progressive rock album, is clearly an AOR release and nothing more, his keybords are rather most of the time only an instrument like others here, not some solos or something worth investigated. Not bad, but nothing to talk about either, still worth 3 stars.
