2 stars Must I be the dissenting voice about this album? Honestly, aside from three fair tracks out of the eleven, this album is nothing but bland, forgettable AOR, with Led Zeppelin's singer fronting the band. The worst song being I Believe. Haven't people learned that imitating the one trick the The Edge uses in every song (playing simple licks through a stereo delay) just isn't terribly creative?

The three worthwhile tracks are Calling To You, which borrows the Middle Eastern feel of Kashmir, Promised Land, that sounds like a mixture of When The Levee Breaks and Hey Hey What Can I Do and Network News, that has a bit of Four Sticks to it. Are you seeing the pattern?

Three good, but derivative songs out of eleven - two stars.

Evolver | 2/5 |
