2 stars This faceless copy of the worst seventies riff rock made me want to turn it off after hearing the first song and the first thirty seconds of the second song. Luckily, I fast forwarded to the worst popmetal ballad of all time in "One of a Kind". The lyrics really ramped up the cheesiness contained within those five and a half minutes of dreck. I did some laundry and played the rest and was wholly uninspired an unimpressed the entire time. No standout tracks, no flashy keys or anything but playing it straight.

I don't know much about Don Airey other than he played with Jeff Beck and other heavy hitters but no artist of any real talent or worth should attach themselves to something like this. Look at the names of the album tracks

1. Respect 2. All Out Of Line 3. One Of A Kind 4. Every Time I See Your Face 5. Victim Of Pain 6. Running Free 7. Lost Boys 8. Want You So Bad 9. Children Of The Sun 10. Remember To Call 11. Stay The Night

unimaginative, uncreative, all out un

I did play it a second time while playing basketball with my son in the driveway. He was un impressed too

I will give it a second star for the collector value of One of a Kind which I went in thinking may be a cover of Bill Bruford. Whoops
