Profiles is Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason's second studio album and 10cc guitarist Rick Fenn's debut studio album. It was released in 1985.

Songs[edit]

It is almost entirely instrumental, save for two songs; "Lie for a Lie", featuring Pink Floyd singer and guitarist David Gilmour with singer Maggie Reilly, and "Israel", sung by UFO keyboardist Danny Peyronel.

There was a time when we were considering it as an entirely instrumental album, but we had 'Lie for a Lie', which we wanted to go on, so we felt it needed another song to balance it out.

— Rick Fenn, [2]

I've certainly enjoyed working with Rick... I think it's useful and important to change the people you work with. You get so stuck in certain patterns. You know: Roger will do this and Dave will do that and... well, you can go and make the tea, Nick!
