DOWNES BRAIDE ASSOCIATION – SUBURBAN GHOSTS (POP)
Current yes Keyboardist Geoff Downes is one the busiest guys in show biz with a full time active membership in Yes and Asia. Somehow he found time to record this pop classic gem with L.A. based Englishman Chris Braide to produce a concept album with pop sensibilities. The themes of isolation and lonliness are explored over Downe’s sheen of vintage sounding keyboards and touching lyrics by Braide. Braide’s vocals are earnest and nuanced. “Dreaming of England” is an instant classic to a must own album for electronic pop fans and proggers alike.
