2 stars ABBFINOOSTY at their best represents a pretty potent marriage of hard edged new wave with prog. But even there, competency is more the term I would use. Little here is truly exciting or memorable, and the "group" would actually improve for the subsequent release.

Probably the best thing here is "Wishsong" which justifies their early reputation for paganism. Elsewhere, Assaf's guitar licks help highlight the title cut, "Drink with the Devil" and "Wild Ones", but it's nothing you really need, and in fact sometimes those leads seem a bit clumsy relative to a perceived subtle intent. The man seems angry but I'm not convinced of the authenticity of that sentiment or at least of his success in conveying it with conviction. As for "Arabic Sales Market", "Meduse", and "The Wizard", haphazard and ham-handed come to mind.

If you are curious, start with "Comes the Storm" and then approach the "Future" with caution.
