5 stars For those of you who like early Genesis, this album will fit you. This CD is worth to buy at least for two beautifully crafted tracks: "Junk and Donuts" and "Somwhere But Yesterday" (epic). In "Junk and Donuts" you would find its introduction is Genesis-Blood on a Rooftops alike accoustic guitar part. Its really nice opening. When the vocals part enter you would immediately find the voice is 90% similar to Gabriel voice. This track is excellent. A big five star for its melody, compositions and movement between musical segments which were created excellently and smoothly. I could not afford not to repeat this track if I play this CD. Anyway, it's been so long I haven't heard this album I would play once I finish with this review. Now, if you start listening to 4th track "Somewhere But Yesterday" you will find how genius this band is in creating touchy melody. This is an epic with excellent composition. It would reach its climax when it hits minute "11:11" onward. The musical part is really nice here! It reminds me to Genesis "Supper's Ready" or "The Battle of Epping Forest". I bet that you would love these two tracks alone. Guaranteed! I don't try to demean the other tracks. Indeed, the opening track "Johny had Another Face" is excellent, uplifting track. You should buy this CD! - Gatot Widayanto, Indonesia.
