FOUNTAINS OF LIGHT
Digitally re-mastered edition of this 1977 sophomore album from the American Prog Rockers. After the success of their self-titled debut, the band was sent into the studio (Morin Heights, Quebec) to record their next album with flamboyant and creative British producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Journey, Foreigner). Fountains of Light is arguably Starcastle's finest moment. Baker's production is meticulous yet forceful, allowing the band to stretch out and take on the competition without sacrificing integrity or a natural melodic song writing ability. Packed out with hooks to die for and submerged in complex yet accessible arrangements, the album oozes charm and class. Housed in one of the most impressively designed album sleeves of the '70s, Fountains of Light still presses all the right buttons. Rock Candy.
