3 stars Fish is surely able to fit the stage with his vocals even with only acoustic instruments. Let's add the former Camel David Paton at the bass, that's effectively the instrument which gives a bit of deepness to the sound and the "right" Dave Stewart wasted at the percussions and the result can't be too bad.

It's a pity that Stewart is limited by the acoustic environment and can't play like in Arzachel, but the sons are well arranged and in some cases are quite better than the originals, in particular "Fortunes Of War" is one of them.

The bad is that the sequence of songs is quite "randomic" so that the album hasn't continuity. There's no crowd and this together with the acoustic thing make it sound like a collection of studio rehearsals, more a documentary than an album.

Of course some song are more reliable for this kind of arrangement and other less. A good one is Dear Friend, that has a country-folk mood, or Sugarmice, but songs like "Somebody Special" are not ideal.

In the end it's an album that's nice to hear as relaxing background. It's good in this sense, but nothing more than this. 3 stars are rounded up.
