3 stars Another new name to me from the ProgArchives vaults....

Ben Rusch has released some albums during the last years and he has a lot of irons in the fire, style wise. On this album, he is more laid back. Well, from the middle of this album and out. The first minutes of this album, the first two songs in fact, is very much like a The Tangent album. And The Tangent is a good reference point together with Morrissey and in particular; Al Stewart. The format is still Ben Rusch - solo artist. But he also use piano and other tangents, guitars and viola to great effect.

The quality of the music is decent throughout. I have to admit I have started to get pretty tired to death of the rock/pop genre and Ben Rusch is in this genre. That's why I fail to engage with this album. The first song Out of Time and the title track is by far the best offerings here and they are rather good. The rest is decent and that's it. I am afraid this is a very weak three stars for me and that's it.

3 stars
