3 stars I've ever thought this album was made only to gain enough money and time to make their next album 'Generation 13' and if you hear to that album you'll probably guess the same. Anyway, there are some good songs in this album just like the first one 'Why Not', very pop and strong at the same time, I like it so much, one of my favourites of the album. 'Shake That Tree' is powerful, a very good song too. 'I Walk With You' is a very emotive ballad that you'll not forget. And other of my favourites 'Steamroller', with a very rocker riff, a very strong piece on wheels. '(Walking On) Thin Ice' is not a typic saga piece, but it's interesting to listen what the band can do when they want, this is not a bad song but I find it a little reiterative. These are, in my opinion, the strongest points of the album, but in general terms this is not essential. NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU ARE NEW WITH THIS BAND!!!
