All Change, June 10th 2000
De Souffleur, Leerdam, The Netherlands

By Cora van Twuijver


Leerdam famous for it's glassworks, certainly has brought a sparkle into the way the musicians of All Change play.
The songs known by the audience, for they were written and performed originally by groups like Marillion, Genesis, Camel, Toto and Big Country were brought back to a smaller podium.

Being a softy for symfo, it was a perfect solution (!) to hear a lot of songs from different groups performed by one. Saves a lot of time and money I must say, although I have to admitt , sometimes nothing's better than the original.
The music from The Police and Sting was performed also, but Sting's voice is simlpy irreplaceble. But having said that, Jarno Wildner (leadsinger) sang Battlelines from John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia) with more soul than I had heard from "the master himself' during his last performance in Utrecht lasttime...
Okay, I know it's easier to copy than to write yourself, but performing is another thing.

The accuracy in which Kees Landmeter (keyboards) excelled had the spirit going, a job well done...The Wall (Pink Floyd) did it for me!
Ton Wildner, former brassbandmember, made a good transition for he played the bass, although not flawless nonetheless good timed.
Eric Verbruggen (guitars) played his heart out, nice solo's!
And being on his first performance ( to my knowledge) , Robert Puper on drums gave rythm with timing and feeling for the music.

So, having said all that, All Change surprised us by playing Floodline. "Homemade" so to speak, and we had the first opportunity to hear it, keep it up boys! That sounded worth lots of follow ups!
