2 stars Oh boy! The descent to the abyss was quite abrupt with "Jane". From great to below average. All this in two years time.

You really need to avoid this album. Vocals are terrible, but music is not great either. I guess that the nadir is achieved with "Mother You Don`t Know". A heavy, bluesy, hard-rockish and uninspired song. Where has the good old psyche/space rock gone to ?

Things get better with "I Need You" : IMO, it is the best track out here but far to be a highlight. The soft and acoustic "Way To Paradise" is not bad either but to refer to an acoustic track to be a highlight of a "Jane" album is rather annoying. This is not the genuine "Jane" as far as I'm concerned. Sounds very much as "Lady ...Jane" from the "Stones".

Some good psychedelic sounds are featured during "Early In The Morning". Hard-rocking space-rock as "Eloy" could play in their very early work; but the history of these two German bands will be cross-linked pretty soon. But that's another story.

The same sort of mood applies during the instrumental "Session". A strong rocking number. "Jane" finally gets back to their roots. Fabulous guitar work for this crazy number. One of the few highlights because the rest of this album won't feature any good song.

Two little stars.
