1 stars I was reminded of this album in a discussion recently. I used to read the 'Sounds' many years ago and a writer by the name of Geoff Barton gave the band a good write up. Anyway,I purchased this album expecting to be treated to pomp/prog rock with overblown layers of keyboards/synths and lush instrumental passages. I guess I should have been forewarned by the opening track. 'Half a mind to leave ya'. Track two was 'Whatcha gonna do'. Looking back I now realise I was in a sort of Slade 'Mama weer all crazzee now' 'Cum on feel tha noize' area of hip, cool prog miss-spellings. Who talks like this anyway. 'Whatcha'/'Leave ya'. I half expected a 'Gertcha' to pop up somewhere! I'm sorry to have to report that the songs on this album are are wishy-washy as the titles. None of them made me glad that I had bought the damn thing. I'm sure this album resides in some 'Where are they now?' limbo. Definitely NOT in my top 200.
