4 stars Here, we have a very enjoyable album from a very enjoyable band. There is not a single bad piece on this recording. The band plays with very much energy and rawness. This makes up some melodies or chord changes that might be a tiny bit predictable. It's incredible how Vincent Crane played all the basses here (not only by using bass pedals, but also by playing the bass guitar with his left hand).

The title track is a very enyojable haunting song. 'VUG' is a very exciting instrumental piece with nice Hammond lines and excellent musicianship. 'Tommorow Night' is the more commercial track in which I love the raw chorus and the hammond solo. '7 streets' is a brilliant piece which also shows some classical influences and awesome riffs. 'Sleeping for years' shows John Cann's skills on guitar. He plays with very much energy here. The guitar intro is really freaky. 'Can't take no more' is a very nice slightly shorter song which continues showing John Cann's guitar skills. 'Nobody Else' is a beautiful timid song whit a harder middle section which brings us to a guitar solo. 'Gershatzer' is a beautiful instrumental, which features one theme and a wonderfully strange key-solo whit no other instruments and a terrific drum solo with no other instruments. In other words: lots of diversity on the album.

The record really has an unusual raw sound and that is what I like about the album.
