2 stars At least his wife did not forget the cover for this one - highly impressive. As for the music, we are not back to standard but this album fares so much better the previous one. Only one track ever stuck in my memory (and apparently in many other's) and was a concert regular: Camino Royale, which will soon give Steve's record company a name. But the climb back up (after such a disastrous album as Cured and a very unfavourable music industry) will be still long for he had fallen real hard after some excellent Spectral Mornings? And let's not forget this is the 80's and his former colleagues are not faring any better aesthetically at the time.
