3 stars So, when I finished with Sd debut album, I had started with the second one.

The same melodies, same perfect arrangements, same pleasant warm sound. Less r'nb or blues rock, more jazzy feelings.

First song, "Bodhisattva", is one of the worst their songs for me. Rhythmic and sharp, it is absolutely out of the contest of their comfortable sound/melody atmosphere. Step by step, song after song you are deeper and deeper in tasty world of their sweet-sour melodies and arrangements.

As with any SD album, again you can accept them as pop/soft rock band with intelligent arrangements and jazzy clothes, or just hate them as commercial unit. In that sense, their second album doesn't change your opinion. More complex and jazzy than their debut, it is firmly placed between similar musicians, like 10 cc or Supertramp.
