The Blast of Silence
Review by Gary Hill
The Blast of Silence represented a new album from Lake, but it wasn’t the same band who had produced all the classic Lake albums. The sound was reasonably the same, but perhaps more jazz-like. The vocals were different, but still not that far removed from the original vocals. All in all it’s a strong disc, but one that lands further into the pop rock vein than the progressive rock territory where some of their material lived.
