Album Review

Aquarian Dream moved from Buddah to Elektra with their second album, Fantasy. With lead vocalist Gloria Jones having left the band, a new singer, Sylvia Striplin, was added. (Striplin would be gone by the third album, Chance to Dance). Despite changing labels and undergoing some personnel changes, however, Dream hadn't changed their sound much; this LP is fairly similar to its predecessor, Norman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream. Connors can take some of the credit for that — the producer knew how he thought Aquarian Dream should sound, and on sleek, Connors-produced material such as "Gentle Thoughts," "Do You Realize," and the Earth, Wind & Fire-flavored "You're a Star," his guidance clearly serves the band well. Arguably, Fantasy is Aquarian Dream's finest album, but even so, it wasn't the commercial breakthrough that the band was hoping for.

Customer Reviews

Funkgroovetastic Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah--this LP is one of the best examples of that 70's disco era sound. Mellow yet driving in tone--jazzy and soulful all at once. They don't make 'em like this much now--but there are a few modern eqivalents if you're interested--The Brand New Heavies work with N'dea Davenport comes to mind, and of course Eyrikah Badu's music is enhanced and influenced by simular period sounds. Love it. . . . buy it. . . .enjoy it and pick your afro!
