Reseña de álbum

The third album by this incarnation of Renaissance was a match for their previous success, Ashes Are Burning, with equally impressive performances and songwriting and a few new musical twists added. The songs here fit more easily into a rock vein, and the prior album's folk influences are gone. Turn of the Cards rocks a bit harder, albeit always in a progressive rock manner, and Jon Camp's bass and Terence Sullivan's drums are both harder and heavier here, the bass (the group's only amplified instrument) in particular much more forward in the mix. This change works in giving the band a harder sound that leaves room for Jimmy Horowitz's orchestral accompaniments, which are somewhat more prominent than those of Richard Hewson on the prior album, with the horns and strings, in particular, more exposed. Annie Haslam is in excellent voice throughout, and finds ideal accompaniment in Michael Dunford's acoustic guitar and John Tout's piano. The writing team of Dunford and Betty Thatcher also adds some new wrinkles to the group's range — in addition to progressive rock ballads like "I Think of You," they delivered "Black Flame," a great dramatic canvas for Haslam and Tout, in particular; and "Mother Russia" is a surprising (and effective) move into topical songwriting, dealing with the plight of Alexander Solzhenitsyn and other victims of Soviet repression (you had to be there in the 1970s to realize what a burning issue this was). And then there were the soaring, pounding group virtuoso numbers like "Things I Don't Understand," which managed to hold audience interest across nine or ten minutes of running time.

One of my favorite albums of all time

First heard this LP in Cleveland in 76, have been in love with it ever since. This is intellegent, beautiful progressive rock. Annie Haslam's voice is flawless. Beautiful melodies and top notch production. Unbelievable keyboard work. COLD IS BEING is actually written by Tomaso Albinoni, with lyrics by Renaissance. So pleased to see Renaissance FINALLY on iTunes. Buy this one. You will not be disappointed


are masterworks. The music arrangments, the playing, lyrics and Annie Haslams singing make the two BTM label albums something that rises high above much of the 2-chord schlock of today. Hope fully iTunes will carry SCHEHEREZADE soon. When I first heard THINGS I DONT UNDERSTAND (co-written by ex-Yardbirds-ex RENAISSANCE drummer Jim McCarty, with Micheal Dunford) I fell instantly win love with this music. From album #1 (a somewhat different lineup)-they rose, and peaked with NOVELLA, then petered out as Punk became the next big thing. Much to our loss.

great progressive rock

I still love this after 30 yrs. Mother Russia is amazing. Annie Haslam has the most beautiful voice ever in a rock band. This album is only second to their Ashes Are Burning release.

The history of Renaissance is essentially the history of two separate groups, rather similar to the two phases of the Moody Blues or the Drifters. The original group was founded in 1969 by ex-Yardbirds members Keith Relf and Jim McCarty as a sort of progressive folk-rock band, who recorded two albums (of which only the first, self-titled LP came out in America, on Elektra Records) but never quite made it, despite some success on England's campus circuit. The band went through several membership...
