4 stars Very impressed - excellent stuff.

Again I got this based on the reviews on this site, and was not disappointed. A very tight unit ably supported with good vocals, remeniscent of Bernie Shaw when he graced Grand Prix in 1980, in fact the song style is also quite similar. the album reminds me vaguely of the manner of DRAMA's 'Flying Over The 21st Century' minus the vocals of course; or, FLAGSHIP's 'Maiden Voyage', not any real resemblance but I did say vaguely...

There is certainly something about this that allows the listener to be taken on a worthwhile journey, and one that wants to be repeated quite frequently, there is plenty of scope given to variation and elaboration. Great care has been given to the production and the 'polish' is evident to the ears.

'Trustworthy Man' and 'Live Fast' unfortunately weaken the album as a whole, almost fillers, the former is more melodic pop rock though it does diversify later.

Worthy of a 4 star rating.
