3 stars This time, there's less focus on the brass section and the sound has been improved as well as updated. Kudos to the drummer, who's trying harder on this album - just listen to his fill-ins on the first track.

The sense of improvisations is still preferred instead of rigid structure. The proof is the "Reflections" track that is rather directionless and the vocal is as improvisational as the saxophone. The track goes on for too long. I have the same complaint about the third track - 12 minutes again.

"Charing Cross" actually looks promising with having only 7 minutes instead of 12 and there is a melody and motive - bit of a lazy feeling but that changes to the frenetic speed after 2 and half minutes. "It could only happen to me" absorps Canterbury electric piano and chords - it is a highlight and there are no vocals!

Still, this album can't make it higher than to 3 stars, despite sounding less awkward than the debut album.
