2 stars The least I can say is that our beloved ProgArchives are opening up the scope of interest, to rather surprising groups such as this one. Let me tell you right away that this is not a progressive rock group but rather a radio-friendly FM-sounding AOR band that did not receive much feedback from the not-so friendly radios. I cannot even say that there are many obvious progressive moments on any of their albums - they are your average guitar oriented group that wavered and oscillated between the James Gang, soft rock Ambrosia, and so many countless bands (Foghat also comes to mind sometimes) that flocked the lower rungs of the billboard 200 of the late 70's, and to be quite honest, did not really deserved to climb in the first half, either. Highlights are few and far between including Ranger At Midnight and the overlong but aptly-titled Maybe I Can Fool Everybody.

Not sure they achieved that feat for more than a few record spins. Complete lack of inspiration, and a journeyman attitude makes such an album best avoided by progheads looking for passionate music.
