Columbia, apparently attempting to cash in on Pink Floyd 's explosion in popularity, released this album in under Nick Mason 's name when in reality he's simply the drummer in this incarnation of Carla Bley 's ensemble; Ms.

Bley composed all the music and lyrics for this project. It's possibly her most overtly pop-oriented album, with all eight songs featuring vocals by Soft Machine alumnus Robert Wyatt. The music, by Bley 's standards, is fairly pedestrian if occasionally catchy, though the lyrics are often wryly amusing. So we have songs about failed car motors and a skeptic's encounter with a flying saucer, and one Hot River - Nick Mason - Nick Masons Fictitious Sports to unappreciative audiences titled "Boo to You Too.

To the extent the songs succeed, Wyatt can take much of the credit. His engagingly hoarse voice is capable of both wrenching sincerity and mordant humor; pieces like "Do Ya? The closing cut, "I'm a Mineralist," is the one that leaves a lasting impression. For Pink Floyd completists, this album might provide a glimpse into an alternate universe of which they were otherwise unaware, but fans of Bley 's earlier masterpieces like Escalator Over the Hill are likely to emerge somewhat disappointed.

This is not necessarily something you'll like if you're a Pink Floyd fan, but if a quirky kind of jazz rock interests you (not the mellow variety of Richard Wright's solo album Wet Dream, but something edgier), don't be afraid to check out Fictitious Sports. It's my personal theory that if he hadn't been in Pink Floyd, Nick Mason would have found his niche as a jazz drummer, so he definitely /5(21).
