  • Cat Stevens' final album as a pop performer (before his conversion to Islam and subsequent rejection of most of the wicked ways of the material world) is something of a return to his early '70s form. It reunites him with TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN producer Paul Samwell-Smith, and like that early classic it's gorgeously arranged, with discreet strings and a terrific command of dynamics (as in the whisper-to-a-scream "Randy"). Other highlights include the uncharacteristic "Bad Brakes," a blues-rocker that sounds like Phil Collins fronting Bad Company, the classically influenced instrumental "the Artist," and "Just Another Night," a folkie rejection song that most explicitly harkens back to Steven's classic period.

Cat's last pop oriented album, appropriately tited "Back To Earth" is a very good album, but a little on the light side.
It is a nice album to relax to, and not as keyboard drenched like its predecessor, Izitso.

There are many highlights including: Just Another Night, Daytime, and Never. And there's really only one lowlight -- New York Times (the chorus sounds like a cheesy "I Love New York" commercial!).

A very good album as I said before, a nice calm way to go out as Cat Stevens!
