Chaos and a Dancing Star

Marc Almond


Marc Almond’s resparked full solo career came with the help of highflying musical journeyman Chris Braide, but while The Velvet Trail was serviceable enough, things clicked a little more strongly all around with Chaos And A Dancing Star, a sleekly polished effort from a now comfortable musical veteran. The title track is a spiky bit of polite glam-rock inspiration, while an inspired guest performance from Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, giving a turn on flute on “Lord of Misrule,” reconfirms Almond’s long-held but sometimes obscured love of prog rock in turn.
