2 stars Not really bad, but certainly not really good, when you recognise the Inspector Gadget tune in one of the songs (Spookie Boogie) you know what time it is, and it's time to put the baby to sleep. Selling out is not a bad thing if it's done properly, but this is meat nor fish.

Still some good moments to be enjoyed, like the joyfull guitar on Friends, or the dancable title track, and the intro song (Words From the Wise) which reminds me of Jethro Tull in the opening.

A low point in GG's history, they will redeem themselves somewhat with a better sell-out album (Civillian) before the inevitable split. Get this album to complete your GG collection and for the fact that it isn't dramaticly bad, but don't expect too much.

Only for fans
