2 stars Take some ounces of folk, add some kilos of neo prog and mix it well with hard rock. Then you get an album like this.

Most of all, this album sounds like it was written and recorded in the 1980s with that attitude which ran through the English society at that time. The likes of Ben Elton, the yuppies, Thatcher and the colour me blind fashion of that time. The music on this album has picked this attitude up very well. This may be a coincidence though.

The music here is all over the place. From vaudeville and folk hall music like early David Bowie to neo prog like Marillion throug to rock like Big Country and harder edge rock. There is no concept and no theme on this album of songs. And that is what it is: an album collection of songs. I am not sure what Abbfinoosty wanted on this album. What's their identity and what did they seek ? This album does not give any answers. The music is also generally pretty weak too. There is some good melodies inbetween the weaker and in some cases; abysmal stuff. But the overriding concept on this album is confusion and bewilderment. And that is why I do not rate this album. Hence my restrained sprinkling of stars.
