Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
3 stars This album, after a nine year absence, was a comeback of sorts for Crack The Sky. And it's not a bad effort. Although it does sound as if they are trying too hard to capture the sound of the early records. But now with four guitarists, these guy can blast out some rock!

First, there's a remake (with a harder edged tone) of "We Want Mine", originally from the "Animal Notes" album. There's "Why Me?", which sounds quite a bit like "Flashlight" from "Safety In Numbers", "Oh, Madonna" sounds like "Lighten Up McGraw" from the same album, and "Cut (The Sequel)" sounds like it could have originally been on the "White Music" album (yet with this grouping, they push it enough to sound good).

The best, and most prog song, is "The Art Of Wondering". With it's loud unison intro and middle section, and slow funky bass behind the vocal sections, it's a joy to listen to.

There are some throw away songs, too, like the silly rap of "Hey Earl", and the silly blues of "Little Stinky".

This album showed that there was still some life left in this band.
