There's a Lot Of It About (LP): Hardly a progressive group but they turn out satisfying records, both vocally and musically.

The Nice

Ars Longa Vita Brevis (LP): A vast improvement on their first album which shows them moving in a direction far removed from any other group, British or American.

Pink Floyd

Point Me At The Sky: Point this at the chart and let it fly! Cynics who maintain that the Floyd are a spent force should prepare to masticate their syllables. They have successfully isolated a strain of pop production that is both infectious and imaginative. The riffs are old but the sounds and thoughts are new. After several plays the lyrics are still a little obscure, working on the assumption they mean more than the introduction which simply talks about building a flying machine and taking off. " 'Idden depth", that's what I suspect is behind this Floydian hit.

Rhubarb Rhubarb

Rainmaker: I was hoping these would prove to be an original comic group, full of cries of "rhubarb" but instead they are a dull "four-piece group from Berkshire". Come on lads, you can do better then this.


Green Tambourine (LP): A nice album by a new duo who play several instruments as well as producing a neat, integrated vocal sound.
