4.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Moments March 31 2008
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD

This album came out in 1985. It is 43 minutes long and the sound quality is very good, especially for a CD from 1985. There are no liner notes giving credits, so it is hard to tell who did what.

It is by Nick Mason from Pink Floyd, just before he and David Gilmore got back together to record the "Pink Floyd" CD, a Momentary Loss of Reason, and Rick Fenn, who was briefly in 10cc as the group was winding down in popularity.

This is a very nice CD throughout with some great moments. It is kind of rock-jazz album and much of the music sounds like the times (mid 1980's).

Some of the songs sound like they could be on one of David Gilmour's albums. David Gilmour actually does sing on Lie for a Lie. Some of the guitar playing sounds like it might have also been added by Gilmour.

Many of the instrumentals sound like they could have been on Rick Wright's first solo album, Wet Dreams. Who knows, maybe he is on the CD also.

But, what it really good on this CD is the original sounding compositions. They sound like the new age music being played at the time, but only with more life. The title composition is really the stand out piece on the CD.

As I write this, this CD is out of print, hard to find, and can be expensive to buy (but that could all change). For a regular priced CD, this would be a nice addition for any Pink Floyd fan. At the higher prices, you might want to think twice about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album! March 10 2006
By John Philippi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While this is certainly a must have for any Pink Floyd fan, I should warn you that it isn't Pink Floyd. Unless you listen to this album with an open mind, you'll be disappointed. I was impressed with Nick's drumwork, particularly on Profiles parts 1 & 2. Rhoda is also a very peaceful and relaxing track with some great soloing. I think this collaboration runs circles around Nick's previous solo album, "Fictitious Sports" and it's nice to hear David Gilmour on "Lie For A Lie", although the song itself is a bit cheesy. Overall, it's a great buy and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Will be Surprised April 23 2006
By RedlineMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As others have said, if you expect Pink Floyd, you will be dissappointed. If you simply listen with a critical ear, you will be surprised. I found myself listening to this (album) over and over when I found it many years back. In fact, it might be responsible for my foray into "New Age" music... whatever that really is. You know... Windham Hill artists and such.

Obviously, instrumental music does not have words to engage the listener. It requires effective use of melody to hook the listener, draw them in, and hold their attention. As well for me, the best collections of music have always been those that were formed in such a away that their actual structure - the placing of songs in an order that somehow fit - created a novel, a story, a chain. This is such a work.

Like the best symphonies from classical music, of which there are many, they are not composed of dissparate tracks, but pieces to a puzzle. Profiles is such an album, and I consider it one of the finest pieces in my collection. People are never less than surprised to know who is responsible for it when they hear it.

You SHOULD add this to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic album July 12 2003
By SteveZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the most overlooked yet brilliant pieces of music I have ever experienced. It's like a secret that you are reluctant to share with others.
