Info for Beyond

Beyond is a fine successor to Rise and would be the prototype for many of Alperts following albums Beside the driving title track another Top 100 hit the rest of the tracks are easygoing and pleasant competently played by a virtual whos who of studio musicians Labelmate Peter Frampton contributes a tasty solo to the mechanical The Factory The Continental is not a new version of the tune featured on the Tijuana Brass album Warm it is instead a mild uptempo number penned by Armer and Badazz Alpert also covers the Earth Wind & Fire anthem Thats The Way of The World

„Naturally, the wild success of "Rise" would lead anyone to the temptation of repeating oneself, and at first, this follow-up LP does plenty of that, grafting the same slow, hand-clapping beat onto several numbers. But Alpert won't sit still for long, and he comes through with some startling things that wake up the record midway through. The funky, percolating party beat of "Red Hot" starts the engine, which is pushed to an electrifying degree by the sequencer-driven, Echoplexed, hard-charging title track, where we hear Alpert's distinctive horn through a metallic electronic buffer. The most amazing track is the finale, "The Factory," a terrifying, relentlessly grinding depiction of a soulless foundry that must have shocked sedate former TJB fans who bought this album on a lark, expecting happy music from the past. Bold stuff indeed, and it did make some impact on the charts, though not nearly to the degree of Rise.“ (Richard S. Ginell, AMG)
