The album sits somewhere between Lenny Kravitz and Pink Floyd and is influencd by Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green and Robin Trower.

It is in the main a power album but has some genuine softer tracks and also has some strong lyrical content especially title track “Crimson Tear” and “Long Hot Summer”, detailing man’s destruction of the earth and global warming. There is lot’s of ambient guitars, slick solos including Don Airey on “Long Hot Summer”. Keith’s voice is unique and is a cross between rock and soul. “Make Love Not War” is the classic straight ahead rock anthem. “The Astral Plain” is an intsrumental in 2 halves, Keith plays everything on it including the volume delayed guitar which sounds more like a soprano sax and very baroque in style. Keith has toured exstensively with The Zombies, Tom Jones, Colin Blunstone, Nik Kershaw & Don Airey. This album highlights the many facets of Keith’s various talents including the Blues Harp on “Another Dream”. Check out Keith’s soaring vocals and blistering guitar – check out AIREYA 51 – Crimson Tear.
