3 stars ...quite a confusing album. similar to the previous one "Eyewitness" in that many songs are similar and dont have a distinct identity of their own...


Seven Days ? 6:22: has a unique synth intro and is a good wake up call after a few just good songs including the instrumental (keyboard-driven as you would assume with André Andersen being the key composer).

and then its back to business as usual with SK 983 which, while good in parts, i can still never tell apart from their other instrumental sections...and Kiss of Faith.

the title-track, while in a similar frantic, keyboard-driven vein is actually a good piece of work (by trial or error they would get some spot-on, you say?)

"Season's Change" is an ok "balladish" song and then we close with a long (7:15) instrumental "Twice Around the World" which is actually quite good.

so, as more often than not with RH, this is a hit and miss story with some awesome stuff and some not so...
