2 stars The opening track of this unbalanced album is a totally marvelous song, which can be easily compared to Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" as a singular hippie-era anthem. Sadly the rest of the album is doesn't work as well as the previous debut mix-up of different styles ? I think on this release the quality got altered too, maybe due sense of success potential gained from releasing "End of The World". Actually this album is quite similar with the forthcoming solo albums of the group's singing tent, highlight tracks being minor ballads like "Annabella". If the group failed to enhance their vision by baking another cake with same recipe as the first, maybe this was one factor leading the to rethink their approach for the forthcoming "666" concept classic. Some beautifully sounding money making attempts at Italy were included to the straits on this path.
