Journey from two years later in which fills out this disc to full length, is a little less special, but mostly still up to the rarefied standard set by its predecessor, with some lovely songs and a slightly more varied mood. To have these two early seventies treats on one CD is a blessing and a taste of bliss.

Among the highlights are "Keep the Curtains Closed Today" and "Beginning," both of which incorporate sublime vocal arrangements by the King's Singers.

Elsewhere, on tracks like "This Is Your Captain Calling," there's an apparent attempt to conform to the contemporary pop sounds of the mid-'70s era. However, Blunstone's voice is better suited to the styles employed throughout his first two LPs, in particular the melancholy string backings of One Year.

As a result, Journey is somewhat of a mixed bag. Colin's chart success has tended to come when he's worked in a style better suited to his voice e.

Still, for Blunstone aficionados, the best tracks on Journey make it a worthwhile effort. Collector's note: The American and British versions of Journey feature a different track lineup and cover artwork.

I really enjoyed Journey, by Colin Blunstone. I'd had the vinyl years ago, and just downloaded the mp3's.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. This album showcases two distinct sides of the Zombies singer. The result is gripping, majestic and satisfying; leaves you wanting to hear more, not wearing your head out with filler.

The proceedings begin with the title track, a brilliant ballad of lost love that is both eerie and weary, and hauntingly beautiful. The mid - tempo second cut "Follow" begs to be a single, and has a touch of Alan Parsons Project influence. It's got a great hook chorus. The gentle but spirited "Dance With Life" has a positive message written by Bernie Taupin, and the piano based "Second Avenue" rounds out the first section with a story about getting a fresh start on life after love lost.

Colin really transports the listener to another place; a place cut - off from the world with a lover; 'and never never say goodbye' sings Blunstone. It is of interest to note that the final 6 compositions are Blunstone originals.

Brian Jasper. Colin never fails to please this newcomer to his camp--with the exception of Keats--and I am quite pleased to hear such a wonderful return to sounds that echo his three earliest projects. This project is truly in the spirit of his best works from his early days, except that it has the distinct and pleasurable addition of extra elements from albums like Echo Bridge and his duo projects with Rod Argent.

Haunting ballads that touch the heart, such as the title track penned by former Mister Mister member Richard Page, the heart and gutwrenching emotion of "Second Avenue," "Now I Know I'll Never Get Over You," and "Feels Like Rain" are of a purely superior quality, and you have to look pretty far to find beautiful adult contemporary music to rival this.

This is all so good and appealing, and it makes yours truly want to become intimate at any given moment. Then again, most of Colin's exceptionally tasteful music does that to me!

That voice is one of a kind, and it just gets better with each project he involves himself in. I love this man's music, and if you're a newcomer, you can't help but be pleased with this album or most of the remainder of his catalog.

I am here to convert, So join us Colin fans. You will thank me after your ears do! Not quite One Year, Colin's celebrated album, who's magic he tries to recapture here.

Despite bringing back Christopher Gunning for the string arrangements for the last 6 songs. But the title tack done with full rock instrumentation is fantastic.

Not quite One Year, Colin's celebrated album, who's magic he tries to recapture here. Despite bringing back Christopher Gunning for the string arrangements for the last 6 songs. The Ghost Of You And Me lacks the magical alchemy of One Year despite Colin /5(19).
