Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the British Pop/Rock legends led by founding members Rod Argent and singer Colin Blunstone. A magisterial work, it is everything you could possibly hope for from the group who, back in the '60s, provided such signature works as the singles 'She's Not There', 'Tell Her No' and 'Time Of The Season' and the album Odessey And Oracle, their 1968 Brit Psych masterpiece. The 10 songs, which make up Breathe Out, Breathe In, are impeccably crafted pieces, the harmonies are rich, the melodies full, the arrangements exquisite, the organ and piano fresh, the production intuitive.

As usual, my favorite male singer and keyboardist have re-emerged with another great album full of rich pop melodies enhanced by blues and jazz influences. In other words, they are still doing what they did in the 60s with more sophistication, and that tag applied to them way back in the day. Mind you, I'm 46 years old and just discovered them last year. There are very few older groups out there together who can still prove their ilk, but it is absolutely amazing how these guys always stay fresh, innovative, and on top of their game. In their mid-60s now, they still have more talent in their pinkies than the younger generation can even conceive.

What's not to recommend on this new release? I guess I'll choose my favorites, and you can argue the points:

"Breathe Out, Breathe In:" The title track is so catchy, I bet you can't get past playing it a few more times before moving on to track #2.

"Play it for Real:" Has a definite 60s blues rock edge, only modded up, and is appealing for that very reason.

"Shine On Sunshine:" Sounds a lot like some of the studio outtakes from the Zombie Heaven box set. Sweet and endearing.

"Moment in Time:" Beautiful song structure. The arrangement is virtually perfect, and Rod's keyboard virtuoso is up front and center.

"Christmas for the Free:" Nice remake of the old Argent song, but Colin's vocals are so much better on it. Beautiful.

"Another Day:" Fabulous straight-ahead rocker. Very nice, tight jam that reminds you something off Ambrosia's first two albums. That Argent prog rock element figures somewhat heavily in this number, and it works to total advantage.

"Let it Go:" This is so beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another British Invasion group September 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In recent years, the Zombies have gone from a flash-in-the-pan British Invasion group, to an integral part of today's contemporary unit producing some of the most amazing pop music this side of the century. Not that the Zombies have been completely dormant since they abandoned their last project after the disappointing reception of one of the greatest pop classics of all time, "Odyssey and Oracle". The tracks recorded for that album (Imagine The Swan, Smokey Day, She Loves The Way They Love Her, and the incredibly arranged I Know She Will) contained some of the best music to that date. In 1991, for starters, Colin Blunstone re-built the Zombies for their "New World" album with a new recording of "Time of the Season", but the stand out track on that album turned out to be "Lula Lula". As a whole, the album's material was quite good. Colin and Rod Argent joined forces for "Out of the Shadows", making their first studio recording since "Odyssey". The 2003 outing featured some impressive songs including "Home", "Sanctuary" and "Only The Rain". The Zombies re-appeared for real via Rhino's 2004 release, "As Far As I Can See" with Blunstone and Argent at the helm. A live concert at Bloomsbury Theatre, London was released in 2007, followed by a live performance of "Odyssey and Oracle" at Shepherd's Bush, 2008. So, since the beginning of the millennium, with a pair each of studio and live releases on the board, the Zombies were on a roll.

2011: Breath Out is the latest release from the Zombies. Now into the second decade of the new M, the momentum they created the past 8 or so years, has paid off. The title track alone is reason to get this disc. The piano break makes me think of "I'll Call You Mine" (the b-side of "Time Of The Season", but not included on "Odyssey" for some reason).

Good mix of new and old stylings. These guys still have it after all these years. Get some vibes of Steely Dan and some of Paul Macartney. The vocal harmonies are also quite good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, and different than vintage Zombies September 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Zombie fan since I heard their first hits come to American radio in 1964. This year I became a Zombie Zealot. One day early this summer I learned they had just put out this new CD AND they were coming to play in my hometown, in a tiny venue just a 10-minute drive from my house. Talk about Zombie Heaven (which as most fans may know, is the name of their great box set).
Well, I got the new disc pronto. Then came the live show and it was super. Colin 'the Voice' Blunstone is 66 now, same as ultra-talented keyboardist Rod Argent. Colin had his full voice for maybe 5 songs until that night's ration of high notes ran out. After that those 'peak' notes were either off pitch or silent. Yet Colin kept plugging away and probably nailed 99% of his vocals in exceptional fashion. He also melted the crowd after he somehow jumped from the first verse to the third in 'Care of Cell 44', a mishap which caused the harmony singers to box words with him. "I've only been singing it for 40 years," he explained sheepishly to Rod. They started again and the crowd loved the proper version.
More to the point of Breathe Out, Breathe In, however, is this - they did 7 of the CD's 10 songs that night. These were unfamiliar to many in the audience, yet drew as much hooting and clapping as the other songs, other than the 3 main Zombie hits and the 2 big Argent (the band) tunes.
The new stuff is good. I must stress that the BOBI release shows a different Zombie soundscape. Why not? Three of the guys are different. Jim Rodford, his son Steve, and Tom Toomey are top-level talents (absolutely) but when they aren't playing strong versions of older songs live, the new trio does their own thing. Additionally, the Zombies have always pinched sounds from other bands.
