2 stars This album is almost tolerable but its so far away from being an outstanding record.

"Spirit of the Dance" (2.25 out of 5.00) The album opens with this instrumental track. Nothing out of this world; A tolerable one, well played and moderately enjoyable.

"Little red Fry-up" (1.75 out of 5.00) This is the first sung track, I don`t like it at all. The performance of Dave lawson as a vocalist is weak and forgettable, although he tries to show off right here... He failed.

"Rainbow" (2.25 out of 5.00) Regular... It didn`t inspired me to write more

"Siam Seesaw" (2.50 out of 5.00) A musical passage. I think its the very first time I`ve heard some acoustic guitars on a Greenslade`s Album, the song is well played and moderately enjoyable.

"Joie de vivre" (2.50 out of 5.00) Some parts Sounds as it were inspired by clasical music. Not my taste but tolerable.

"Red Light" (1.25 out of 5.00) The first refiller. Nothing really outstanding, Luckily its short!

"Melancolic Race" (1.75 out of 5.00) Nothing memorable right here but luckily a bit better than the previous.

"Theme for an Imaginary Western" (2.00 out of 5.00) The album ends with this track. Very weak and slow but tolerable.

This album didn`t inspired me to write more, just a few words.

Its hard to me Greenslade`s works because of the weakness and lack of creativity. But this one I consider to be a moderately good record.

So I will give it.

2 Stars well received
