3 stars The second album of Cozy Powell brought together various music styles into the album. This time Cozy brought in talented musicians like Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, Neil Murray, Jack Bruce, Mel Collins, David Sancious and others. The music is actually not complex and I enjoy with almost all tracks in this album. 'The Right Side' is of course an interesting opening in blues rock fashion with some flavor of jazz especially through the sax work by Mel Collins. The vocal part is also very nice. 'Living a Lie' is basically a nice blues track with good guitar work by Bernie Marsden. Even though this album was released in 1981, there is a strong nuance of 70s music as shown by this song.

The 'Sooner or Later' is basically a straight pop rock song. 'Cat Moves' featured Jeff Beck as guitarist and the song is really nice. 'Sunset' was performed by trio Gary Moore (guitar), and Don AIrey (synth solo) and it moves excellently with some blues and jazz elements on it. The trio also perform excellent track 'The Buster' which runs in relatively fast tempo with stunning guitar solo and powerful drumming. Cozy's drumming is really excellent!

Even though this album is actually not really a prog album but there certainly elements with prog style. It's an interesting album. Keep on proggin' ..!
