Rollover to Zoom 



2014 album from the veteran British outfit. To play a new Colosseum album is to step into the unknown. Anything could happen. All bets are off. While less questing bands are content to issue fading photocopies of their best-selling work, TIME ON OUR SIDE is the sound of old friends embarking on new adventures. Eleven years have passed since TOMORROW'S BLUES: A lifetime in rock 'n' roll. The album may have been a pleasure to record, at drummer Jon Hiseman's own Temple Music Studio in Surrey, yet it's completion marks the end of a period of some uncertainty. quot;We started it in 2010 by meeting in the studio and playing through demos that had been written by the band members,quot; the drummer remembers. quot;But after 2010, the future of Colosseum was always going to be decided by whether Barbara would be able to tour again.quot; of course, multi-instrumentalist Barbara Thompson is a vital part of the Colosseum story. The completion alone of TIME ON OUR SIDE, then, is a towering achievement. That this new album is so dazzlingly successful is testament to the enduring genius of one of Britain's most inventive lineups. Almost a half-century after Colosseum's formation, this is unmistakably the sound of a band with gas still in the tank and endless lightbulbs popping over their heads. quot;I know that when we get together we all feel like we are coming home,quot; says Hiseman. quot;This album was easy to make and it just feels rightquot
