Brian Auger - Here and Now (2006) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
Whether he was clear or not in his vision only he can say, but Here and Now sounds like the effort of an artist who has lost his way. While Auger can't really be blamed for the sound of this recording, it still doesn't weather well because of its sheeny 1980s sound (it was originally released in 1984). The faux disco tunes that seem to be swinging for some sort of pop fence (though this sound had already been history for five years by 1984), are empty of real emotion, and filled instead with female backing vocalists to add that edge they so sorely lack. The only place where this isn't true ismore… on the instrumentals, such as "Heart of the Hunter," where the trademark Auger exploratory consciousness is roving the musical landscape in search of knotty harmonics and altered cadences in his solos. The album did net a hit single in "Happiness Is Just Around the Corner," but unfortunately, it doesn't hold up well over time. While this album is a big miss, it certainty was a momentary lapse. Auger's career as an innovator and inspiration continues into the 21st century with fine recordings and legendary live shows.
