4 stars City boy are often lyrically (and musically) extremely inventive in their songs. As in the song:"Honeymooners" or the strange "The man who ate his car "...i was reminded of 10cc and their tour de force album. "Sheet music" which had several bizarre songs and wonderful song arrangements..lots of breaks and strange story´s to tell!!However this is City boy and they are equally wonderful and strange and on their own terms!! Lol Mason & Steve Broughton on ( respectivily):Lead vocals and guitars/ lead vocals. Mike slamer the master of the leadguitar/ fills and Power chords! Max thomas rules the keyboards / Roy ward on drums and percussion and Chris Dunn on solid bass!! Alltogether these guys make wonderful music in the art rock/prog/pop sort of way!! So if you´re slightly into artrock/popprog a la 10 cc /Charlie/ Movies (remember them?) then youre in for a treat !! As these guys really were (they dont exist anymore)great in their field. Now im a i might be biased,when i say: THIS IS FU.... great music! They have the twist and turns of 10 cc and the sheer vocal brilliance of Charlie. fellow popprog friend...this/these guys are worth every minute of your time!!! Hardrock/metalprog fan stay away!!! Me? Im totally amazed by their exuberant talent and musicianship!!! W O N D E R F U L !!!!
