Review by admireArt
3 stars It is kind of healthy for Nic Potter to have stayed away from his mothership band's musical language, he anyway held, as bass player, the invisible position.

Nic Potter's NEW EUROPE - RAINBOW COLOURS, 1992 has one of the most uncharacteristic track dispositions I know. First track lasts 4 minutes, second track 47, then back to 2 or 3 or 6 minutes tops for the remaining eight tracks.

Anyway, Nic "Mozart" Potter, as his nickname implied had a natural hunger for symphonic music. To Progressive electronic followers, the thrill consists in adding electronic noises in his "classical music" oriented compositions. Track 2, "New Europe", which is like an album itself, delivers to all extent the symphonic mode accompanied by some electronic touches just at the right time. As I found out in earlier releases, his musical language was just starting to bloom, therefore it still shows his personal influences and likings.

Some tracks , track one the most, show that he was highly impressed by the Dire Strait's 1985, "Brothers in Arms" album, I assume, and maybe to be more accurate in my wild guess, their live tour of the same.

Others are guitar or flute based, "New Age" kind of atmospheric compositions which hold among the rest a more personal musical language.

The kind of release which should not go unnoticed, yet it still is short of being essential according to PA's suggestions on rating.

PD-And believe it or not, all symphonic aspirations, although not that unique, never sound over the top, which adds up for their enjoyment.

***3.5 PA stars.
