3 stars Salem Hill: Strong vocals and harmony, Gentle Giant with touches of Kansas and ....shhhh (Styx).

Power Guitar, From Gilmour to Livgren

Keys: very Kansas styled.... almost to a fault.

Ryhthm section: Again, very Kansas influenced.

Lyrics: hmmmm, again Kansas, but with touches of Roger Waters.

Guests: David Ragsdale's violin is the perfect foil for Dearing and Groves. Too bad he didn't play on the whole disc.

Not Everyone's Gold: A solid three stars. A good cruisin disc, but extremely hampered by '70's production values. Re-mastering is needed. They won't hit their stride until BE, a truly unique disc.

The first 6 tunes are almost juvenile compared to Sweet Hope Suite's majesty. SHS is worth the price alone, a multi-sectioned piece with power and grace.

If you want to get into Salem Hill, Start with BE, then a Robbery of Murder and finalize the set with NEG.
