Prog Reviewer
4 stars I just referred to this album in my review of the debut album by Ywis. So this one is better and I'll explain why. The album starts off with Sad man, a powerfull track which gets you in the right mood. Next is the title track, a short compact song in the same vein as the first one, real energetic. Actually this goes also for the third track, though somewhat less impressive. The fourth is a very interesting ballad, emotionally sung by Geert van de Burg and ending with a beautiful piano solo. The 5th track is my personal favourite. The morning roars again is at last a track with a very good guitar solo by Rinus Hollenberg, in fact it's one of the best solos I know and believe me I know quite a lot of those. Almost a 5 star track, this one. The next two are not really the best of the album, still good but of course there will always be quality difference between songs. The 8th track is a tremendous instrumental, far better than the one on their debut album. In fact this entire album is real vigorous and so is the last track, which is resembled by the last track on their debut, only better.

So it's obvious that this successor is better than the debut by this band in every department. It deserves a better rating because of that. So I will give it 4 stars.
