If you love Prog/Art Rock from the 70's then buy this compilation from Curved Air. The songs are infused with some classical influences and the musicianship is extraordinary. Plus vocalist Sonja Kristi is beyond words. If you are fan of early Genesis with Peter Gabriel or early King Crimson you will love this power packed 27 song retrospective by one of the most talented yet least know artists in this genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Female-fronted progressive rock August 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Curved Air was a British progressive band that was primarily active in the 1970s, although they have periodically reunited for concerts and special projects. Their sound was unusual, a combination of classical and rock influences, with heavy use of keyboards and electric violin. Lead singer Sonja Kristina came from a folk background, but handled the more orchestral material well. Like some of the other progressive bands from that era, their sound was often too experimental for its own good. They were also undercut by repeated personnel changes. As a result, their songwriting was intermittent. Their best tracks were outstanding, and notable for their sheer originality. Their worst material, some of which is included on this compilation, could be a bit embarrassing. Perhaps surprisingly, the band was at its best on the longer, more progressive compositions. Standout cuts include Peace of Mind (from Second Album; the lyrics feature a passage from T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland), Over and Above (from Phantasmagoria) and Metamorphosis (from Air Cut), which run 8-12 minutes in length, but sustain interest throughout.
