2 stars Much more pop-oriented, this album features a lot of electronic sounds which are not too much of my likings.

The worst being the opening number ("Don't Kill It Carol"). And when I listen to "You Angel You", I can only come to the conclusion that the best of Manfred Mann is definitely behind him (do try and listen to "Father Of Day. from "Solar Fire" for instance).

This album is a mix of pop-rock tunes, some guitar solo here & there or pleasant synth (both during the childish and uninspired "Hollywood Train"). I totally agree with EL while he compares the sound of this album with "Asia". "Belle Of The Earth" has this AOR verse which doesn't really suits me. At all.

The naive ballad "You Are, I Am". is a catchy song, poignant at times, the highlight being a great synthesizer work from the Mann. My favourite passage of this album (lasting only for two minutes).

The melancholic "Waiting For The Rain" is another nice ballad. But there are a bit too many of these on this album. Still, it is another good moment of this work (the closing instrumental part especially).

IMO, this is average pop-rock-AOR music. Five out of ten. Two stars.
