Product Description:

Pilot: Bill Lyall (vocals, keyboards); Dave Paton (bass); Stuart Tosh (drums).
Audio Remasterer: Ian Jones .
Liner Note Author: Michael Heatley.
With its swirling keyboards and falsetto vocals, "Magic" became one of the great one-shots of the '70s, and it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone familiar with one-hit wonders that Pilot's accompanying full-length isn't as good. Despite the lack of strong material, the album is hardly without merit. Pilot, along with producer Alan Parsons, crafted an album of light prog-rock and melodic soft pop-rock. All of the album sounds terrific, and there are some catchy melodies, but there aren't many great songs, just a lot of adequate ones. As a result, it's simply an artifact of its era, but it's an enjoyable one at that. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
