2 stars Great opening song with every hints of the skilled producing giant who can be acknowledged for his maestria.

But to be honest, songs as "Hurting for you" are just average rock songs. OK, the man is holding very good guitar lines. But, what else? It had been quite a while now that the great man didn't release some great or even good albums.

I can only describe some damned good pop songs ("Determination") which can't of course be described as highlights of this "Hermit".

Plenty of powerful and catchy songs are featured on this work. It certainly deserves a powerful regard to some good old rocking moment ("Bread"). But to be fully faithful, I have to say that most of this album has little to do with prog. But so were most of his prior albums.

Average rocking parts ("You Cried Wolf") are holding this album above the desperate line. It is a real weak number indeed. Poor combinations, no emotions at all and weak tracks to close this forgettable "Todd" record.

Two stars are very well paid.
