4 stars This second album is darker and more intense than the first one in the sound and in the nature of the lyrics. From the opener, we can hear the big Steve Hackett influence on the guitar sound. The production is perfect and the beautiful arrangements give to the songs that are already of high quality more value. If Nick Beggs doesn't have the greatest voice, he has succeeded to make the vocals works with some specials recording effects. The music contains some nice atmosphere and some catchy chorus that will take you back at times to the 80's new wave past of Nick. When you have Roger King on the keyboards, you can go wrong again here with some beautiful melodies. The solid precision in the drums playing of Marco Minneman is also a highlight of this album. And finally who can resist the sound of that Chapman stick of Nick Begg that apparently is responsible for a lot of the guitars section. If the first album was a collaboration work, this one is a trio effort and a solid one.
