2 stars Despite its ugly cover, bad reputation and subdued drums, this album still has its moments.

Devoted to woman, it opens with "Lucifer", a (provoking and misogynous) catchy instrumental number in the vein of "Hyper Gamma Spaces" (from the Pyramid album) and it is by no means the weakest records of APP as some reviewers have pointed out.

Ok, there are some polished and pure pop oriented numbers as "You Won't Be There", "If I could Change Your Mind" (female vocals), "You Lie Down with the Dogs" but, on the other side there are still interesting tracks as "Secret Garden" (very pleasant instrumental with elegant vocalisings), "I'd Rather Be a Man" (similar to "Lucifer"), "Damned If I Do" (amazingly bitter with powerful orchestra), the decadent loop (in my humble opinion) of "Winding Me Up".

Andrea Cortese | 2/5 |
