3 stars C'mon.."Calling All Stations" is breathtaking with its sweeping foray into the "adult complexities" These songs are mature subject matter. The title track features a hipnotic drum beat that is easy. Bank's leading tones on the synth, c"mon you know you love it. "Congo" is laughable "Alien Afternoon" blows me away when the drums come in. Who"d of thought? But the song is about LOSING IT and wishing you had it all back. And basically this album is about the despair of lost Feelings. Ray Wilson's voice is beautiful on "It's Not About Us". "Dividing Line" tries to confound me (What will you turn to? I know - a drum solo). It's sad, really the album, but it had to be done.; the telling of hurt and loss. When I first played "Calling All Stations", I thought finally an album with words and feelings similar to mine. It moves and grooves but watch out! The dividing line tells, and it hurts. But definetely check it out, it will blow you away. Where Else are you gonna find such a smooth track as "If That's What You Need".? Didn't think so. I'll always Always have a special place in my heart for the Opening song. It is my favorite Bank's sound and I'm always enraptured by it's dark mood.

"Three" stars
