Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
1 stars This album made Crack The Sky disappear for a few years in the mid eighties. And if you heard it you would understand why. It's hard to believe that it this is essentially the same lineup, plus a couple of guitarists (one being founding member Rick Witkowski), and minus keyboardist Vince DePaul, that created this band's very good comeback album, "Cut", in 1998.

If you just listened to the first two tracks, Breakdown and Skindiver, you might think this was a fair hard rock album. But after that, a lame semi-electronic version of Needles And Pins indicates where the rest of the album is going. Bland and unimaginitive, the rest of the album offers little of interest, unless you like the dreary Too Cold To Be Cool (used in the heroin movie "Rush").

Don't bother.
