4 stars I approached this album with trepidation cos every review said "beginning of the end", "a lot less creative" blah blah blah. Well, how wrong they were. This is a superlative GG album, with the exception of "Give it Back" which sounds like 10cc with the sh** kicked out of them. ( What an intriguing idea! ) Towering above all the tracks on this album, though, is the monumental "I Lost My Head", divided into it's constituent "Kerry" and "Derek" parts. Now, don't get me wrong - I love the "Derek" part. Even though you can hear the beginnings of Journey or Boston in it's gleaming prog-metal sheen it's too tricky to be simple AOR. It .... ahem! ... rocks! But it's the "Kerry" bit I really adore. It really is genius! So, three stars for "I Lost My Head", two for the rest and one off for "Give it Back".
