2 stars I almost put this album on shelf and without any intention to re-spin until I found the great and rockin' composition of "Lost In Holywood". Yeah, this is the only song that makes me liking this album. It starts wonderfully with jaw dropping drum work by Cozy Powell (one of great names in rock drumming) followed with dazzling riffs by Ritchie. Wow! It's truly an excellent rock music. In the middle of the riffs throughout the segment, Cozy and Ritchie give a solid staccato to accentuate the song - eg. at the start of lyrical passage. The staccato is then continued in many segments of the music and it becomes the main characteristic of this song. "Last time I saw your face .. " is a melodic lyrical passage that brings the music in an uplifting mode.

Unfortunately "Lost In Hollywood" is the only excellent track from this album and the other tracks are ranging from bad - like "Makin' Love" or "Since You Be gone" - to just "so and so" and nothing special from it. In fact, if you need Lost In Hollywood, you can get it from the best album, so no point to purchase this CD unless you are a completionist. Keep on rockin', keep on proggin' .

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
