Equally disappointing is John Martyn's Glorious Fool (WEA), which hopefully would have built upon the fine work heard on last winter's Grace & Danger.
Produced by Phil Collins, this collection of half-developed ideas suffers from incredibly trendy arrangements and murky, annoying vocal sound tricks that reduce nearly every cut's listenability.
Martyn should either produce his next album or find someone capable of distilling his undeniable talents into something approaching the realm of the accessible.
This snippet was included in the Records section of the Edmonton Journal, Thursday 22 October 1981, on page 27. It must have been based on superficial one time listening. The advice is to turn up the volume.
