4.0 out of 5 stars SYNTH-DRIVEN ROCK AND POP, June 1, 2003
This review is from: Dream Weaver (Audio CD)
This album of synth-driven rock presented quite an innovative mix of textures when it was released in 1975. Love Is Alive and Let It Out have beautiful melodies and female backing vocals framing Wright's rock vocals, giving the latter a soulful feel. Feel For Me is a similar mix of pop and R&B. Can't Find The Judge has a funky rhythm and strangled vocal whilst Made To Love You is a gentle pop ballad. The pace picks up for Power Of Love with its strong rock riff and soaring vocals. Dream Weaver itself is a masterpiece of synthesizer tinkles and whooshes with evocative imagery and poetic lyrics. Although this album makes extensive use of the synthesizer, the arrangements are still in a rock/pop format and the overall sound is nothing like Kraftwerk or the later synth-pioneers like Eurythmics, OMD or Gary Numan. But it remains a minor classic with its memorable and melodic songs.
