2 stars Not sure how he went from the awesomeness of Defector to this. Maybe he wanted to go pop like his former colleagues, but it's clear that a lot was off on this album. The real weakness of this album is the execution though. For some reason, Steve's voice sounds a lot worse on this album. He sings in a very high range, kind of like Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, and it just doesn't sound right. It is strange that he chose to sing this way since his voice sounded good on his other albums. Also, the keyboard sound hasn't aged well, and sounds a little too cheesy. Nevertheless, there are a few things to like in this album. Instrumentally it's still quite good, but there's not enough of it to warrant a higher rating than 2 unfortunately.
