4 stars Lovely piece of work that hits the highs, but also some very mediocre bits at best. The album starts off nicely with the pacy and interesting "fair exchange." The lyrics and vocals can make you sit up and be surprising like "The Tia Maria she lives on the wall, looks in the mirror and pukes on the floor!" (I guess its a drink thing).

The album has many catchy riffs and good playing. The standout tracks are "Ships in the night" which was a hit single, and the track "Sleep that burns." The later tracks or side 2 on vinyl are not to memorable unfortunatly which is why I have not scored it higher. Worth a purchase though for some of the highs.
