Geoffrey Downes' "World Service" a let down...
I must say I was a little disappointed in the short snippets of songs from Geoffrey Downes "World Service". It appears that Mr. Downes has a great love for the old BBC broadcasts and has fond memories of the days in his youth when he listened intently on the old tube radio with the large glass dial whose pointer named cities all over the globe. It appears though that this love for nostalgia is lost in its transition to the music that was inspired from his visits to those cities to which he has named the tracks for this CD. A good idea that falls just a little short of his abilities. If you are a big Geoffrey Downes fan like myself, its a definite addition to your collection, however for the casual listener, I can only suggest that this is only an average performance by the usually amazing Mr. Downes and that his other perfomances (especially the newest Asia CD - "Aura") may bring you a better listening experience.

My sentiments exactly. If you are looking for a Geoff Downes Ambient CD check out the new "shadows and reflections". This CD is ok but s&r is much better!!
