Prism Gets It Right

This is the newest from perennial Canadian rockers Prism, and it seems they got it right. Founder, songwriter, singer Al Harlow remade the band in his own image, trimmed the fat, and the resulting creative energy of Big Black Sky might surprise some. The title track has enough keyboard atmosphere and apocalyptic future-shock for those familiar with the band's past. But "Ya Bother Me" and "Try Me" display Harlow's Faces-style swagger, while middle-east images of desert heat in "Across the Border" echo the modalism of "Tangiers", sitars included. Old friends appear in the form of Jim Vallance's uptempo "Last Time", Johnny Ferreira of Colin James' band blows sax and fellow Canuck shouter Darby Mills duets the vamp in "The Rock", E-Street flavoured R&B. The only outside writing is Eddie Cochran's raunchy "Nervous Breakdown" tempered by vulnerable street-cred ballads "One Woman's Hero" and "Say You Want Me" with co-writer Steve-O. Harlow claims an old Twilight Zone TV episode inspired the sci-fi lyrics for "Hundred Years", if not its epic arrangement, guitar talk-boxes and Gary Grace drum solo in space. Add recurring "Rock" themes, and press "play" again.
