Jefferson Starship: Windows Of Heaven


Artist: Jefferson Starship
Album: Windows Of Heaven
Released: 1999
Format: eac.wavpack.scans

Este es el disco de reunificacion de algunos miembros de la Jefferson, Balin, Kantner y Casady. Es un trabajo hecho con esmero, cuidando las melodias y la instrumentacion. Kantner ha salido del cliche de sus ultimos trabajos para dar al disco un aire muy de los setenta. Ya desde su primer tema, el aroma de los primeros Airplane lo impregna todo, y la cantante Diana Mangano no desmerece en nada a Slick. Mangano canta como Slick en sus buenos tiempos, con voz clara y con el gusto por la psicodelia de principios de los setenta. Fue una sorpresa para mi este album, creia que la Starship era ya incapaz de hacer algo bueno, ya que sus ultimos discos no me gustan demasiado. Esto les perdona de sus pecados anteriores.

Original Jefferson Starship bandmembers Marty Balin, Jack Casady, and Paul Kantner were back with some songs about the millennium, protests, and life in general on 1999's Windows of Heaven. Guest vocalist Grace Slick, who sings on one track (I´m On Fire, not in this edition), makes the album almost a full-scale reunion. New bandmates Prairie Prince (the Tubes) and T. Lavitz (Dixie Dregs, Jazz Is Dead) add even more spice to the mix, as the offshoot of one of San Francisco's finest '60s psychedelic bands prepared itself for the 21st century. Vocalist Diana Mangano sounds remarkably similar to her predecessor, and helps to create a very Jefferson Airplane-ish vibe. This may not be the best album from the Starship/Airplane catalog, but it served as a stunning reminder that, as of 1999, much of the '60s psychedelic subculture was still alive and well and standing at the Windows of Heaven.
