3 stars Karl Groom did the drum engineering and mixing at "Thin Ice Studios". Seems to be a concept album about the relationship between a man and a woman. Lots of famous quotes in the liner notes.The emphasis is on the synths and the vocals, and there are some tasteful guitar solos as well.

Best part of the first track "Skintrade" is before 6 minutes when it kicks in with some excellent guitar. "Turn The Gun" is better than the first song, I like the passionate vocals and background synths.The tempo changes often. "From The Cradle..." and "...To The Grave" are pretty good songs but the focus is on the lyrics.The highlight for me is "The Letter" a very emotional tune with Gilmour-like guitar early. Nice bass before 3 minutes too.

"The Game" is pretty good one with lots of synths and piano early and some more beautiful guitar. "Too Late..." sounds good to start out with those drums. Piano takes over then vocals join in. Not a bad record at all, good vocals too. "...To Say Goodbye" sounds good to begin with as those acoustic guitar melodies shine with drums and synths. Vocals eventually arrive. Excellent tune. "Seems Like Yesterday" ends the album in style. I like the synths and strummed guitar.The sound does get fuller.

Good album but nothing more.
