Overview

Mumbo Jumbo

Fittingly for an album called Mumbo Jumbo, Air Supply do employ some smoke and mirrors on their 2010 album -- perhaps more than any of their previous albums, dabbling with a variety of textures and rhythms. Although their touch remains decidedly light, this isn't merely a collection of romantic ballads: it opens with the spooky prog pomp of "Setting the Seen"; "A Little Bit of Everything" pulsates with the clean sheen of the late '80s; they work up a fairly good head of steam on "Me Like You"; they get a little dirty on the slow groove of "Lovesex"; "Until" approaches the baroque; and even on something as soft as "A Little Bit More," the acoustic guitars are unadorned in a way Air Supply never have tried. While none of the songs approach the skyscraping hooks of their soft rock classics, this isn't the sound of a band resting on its laurels; if anything, this is one the group's most adventurous records, which may also be why it's one of Air Supply's best.

Being an Air Supply fan since the 80s and having seen them in concert many times over the years, this CD will not disappoint. I was not the biggest fan of their 90s releases like News From Nowhere and Yours Truly, each containing a few good songs and alot of music I did not connect with. This CD is a very different step for them from their roots. There are alot of great songs and a few that stay in your head for days like, "Faith in Love" and "Dance With Me" and a couple favorites that I have heard them play live the last couple years like "A Little Bit Of Everything". Graham and Russell still sound as strong as ever and they took lots of chances and no prisoners with this one!! Pure enjoyment from start to finish. Enjoy!
