Review

Voyager was a British band that made what might be described as pop songs with the complexity of progressive rock. Both albums were produced by Gus Dudgeon who worked with Elton John and many other British artists. The music is melodic with strong vocals and contains many interesting changes. It is entirely performed by the band.

Standout tracks on Halfway Hotel are “4-2-4 or 4-4-2?” - an interesting song with obscure lyrics that will stick in your head and “Straight Actors”.
On Act of Love, “Lead Head", which reminds me of Steely Dan, and "Cling to me". Highly recommended for those interested in well crafted music.
