Nomadic Sands

Nomadic Sands
(YesterRock - 2011)

Hmm, an album from 1985 being re-released in 2011, well alright. Only problem is, that the band Lodgic did not have very much success in USA during their 10 year career from 1977 to 1987. And Nomadic Sands was the only album they ever recorded, before splitting up and move on to other projects such as Billy Sherwood's involvement in Yes, both Billy and Mike Sherwood plus Guy Allison forming their new band World Trade.

But Lodgic, I think they mostly got known for touring with Supertramp and getting their best song Lonely Man to appear in the Kirsti Alley movie Prince Of Bel Air. Their musical efforts resulted in the record Nomadic Sands from 1985, a record Yesterrock is now giving another shot. The style is 80's pop rock and none of the songs (apart from Lonely Man) has enough power and personality to stick their head up. Mainly they lack a simple quality as a chorus to remember them by, another unlucky characteristic is still standing boredom in the disco pop world that made a hit in the 80's. Some quality guitar passages saves it from falling into the abyss, but as a whole the CD does not have so much relevance these days.
