3 stars You gotta love the warm vocal stylings of Gary Chandler, not to mention the way he plays some excellent guitar. And when you add John Jowitt and Martin Orford into the mix, we should have a four or five star record. But in my opinion we don't, I just don't know why. Should John and Martin been given more prominance ? Was this record rushed ? Or maybe it's just me ? I feel that half of the songs are just ok and the others range from good to excellent.

Highlights for me are "The Great Outside" that opens with acoustic guitar and sampling that gets totally blown away by an explosion of drums, guitars, everything ! This song features a great guitar melody and those vocals I like so much. "Each And Everyday" is a terrific slow tempo song with outstanding vocal melodies.Then there is the title song "Fanatic" a powerful and emotional instrumental that is my favourite on the record. "Yourself Alone" is all about the vocals."Take These Words" is a good uptempo song with soaring guitars, I really like the main melody.

A good album, but JADIS have done better.
