French TV - After a Lengthy Silence. 1987 USA

French TV - After a Lengthy Silence. 1987 Y Records

CD reissues: 1996 Mellow (Italy); 2006 MALS (Russia)

Fine sophomore album from French TV, a band that continued to grow leaps and bounds from album to album. After a Lengthy Silence is mostly an instrumental progressive rock, heavily influenced by jazz fusion, with a surprising space rock ending. The production is typical of the muddy late 1980s, and holds back the potential of the material. This aspect of the band would also improve as time went on.

The latter cover is the CD issue on Mellow, where they basically "colored it in". You can still buy the LP new at Wayside if so desired.
