4 stars This album isn't as spacey as "Portable Madness" and it has shorter more accessible tracks on it. Also half the tracks have vocals on them, it's almost like they were trying to become more commercial sounding.

"Strange About Your Hands" was also on "Portable Madness" but without the vocals.This is one of my favourites on here though. The guitar is melancholic to open as vocals join in quickly with bass. A fuller sound when the chorus arrives. The contrast continues. I really like the guitar 2 minutes in and it eventually starts to cry out as the bass throbs. "Just A Little Bit More On The Curve" opens with bass as guitar comes in tastefully with cymbals. Synths a minute in and drums follow. It's cool the way you can hear the two different guitars playing seperately through the left and right speakers. "Yardbirds Dream" is more uptempo as guitar and drums lead the way. "Map" is another favourite of mine. A nice steady beat with guitar sounds so good. Organ comes and goes and drums are prominant late. Beautiful song. "Boat Of Madness" is led early by synths and bass before vocals and drums join in. It becomes psychedelic before 2 1/2 minutes to end it.

"The Left Side Of The Green" opens with guitar, keys and drums as vocals join in. Nice bass a minute in. I love the guitar 1 1/2 minutes in, back to vocals a minute later. A hypnotic beat as the guitar plays over top after 4 minutes. Nice. "Finest Finger" opens with a great sound of synths and drums as vocals join in quickly. Organ before 1 1/2 minutes and after 2 1/2 minutes. The guitar is melancholic after 3 minutes to end it. Excellent track. "Into The Memory" is led by synths as drums and guitars come in before a minute. One guitar is riffing the other is playing over top. A change 3 minutes in to a more psychedelic sound. Drums come in after 4 minutes.

I really like the cover art front and back with the cartoon picture of the band in the subway. It's 3 dimensional which is cool. I like this record a lot, just an enjoyable and relaxing listen. I still can't believe they're from Italy.
