Finn Arild - Serendipity Review

by Morley Seaver

.
I played this and then I went and splashed water on my face. I had to wake up. Surely I was dreaming and not in a time warp. This record by Norwegian Finn Arild would fit in perfectly in the 1970s amongst Loggins & Messina, England Dan & John Ford Coley. Man, did a Seals & Crofts record of this guy's parents fall on his head as a toddler or something?

Having said that, how to review this? Despite being remotely prog-ish in parts, the record is completely unlike anything else out there today except on gooey easy listening stations that play office schmaltz. It's inoffensive and slick with a Michael McDonald sort of vibe (minus the voice). So do I say it's crap because it's a glaring '70s retro piece. Or do I say the songs are all well crafted and the delivery is pretty solid. Oh, I know…I just heard the cut called "Nightly Encounters" which has a line that goes, "You feel the heat from my naked body. You smell my sweat and get so excited." Thumbs down dude!
