Passport - Earthborn (1982)

The 12th album from this German band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of percussion, bass, drums, guitars, keyboards, saxophone, flute and vocals.

Klaus Doldinger continues on with Passport. This is his life and I can only admire him for that.

Passport has released some very good albums through their career and has mostly continued in the formula established on their debut album.

That means semi-intense fusion with a lot of Weather Report influences. 

The band is not so hard on the accelerator on this album. The music is mostly mid-tempo with a couple of ballads inbetween.

The music is mostly jazz on this album with some good saxophones from the master himself; Klaus Doldinger.

The music is fairly good... but with some exceptions. The song here with vocals is not good and reeks of bad 1980s taste. 

Besides of that song, this is a decent to good album.

2.5 points
