Prog Reviewer
1 stars This album has really nothing to be compared with Rick's prior and debut solo album. The music displayed here is just a collection of electro-beats with little flavours.

In terms of his partnership with Dave Harris, I really wonder why Rick did this choice. I just can say that he was rather poor in terms of input. IMHHO, he was just not the guy to go along with Rick (even in 1984).

There are hardly any great track here. The worse is probably Strange Rhythm and the most bearable one Cut Like A Diamond. Thanks to a fine and spacey intro, the listener is finally brought to some better music. My fave from this album, but to be honest it was not difficult.

If you really want to experience the awful electro-beats from By Touching, then you have to listen to this album. I was wrong about Strange Rhythm. The worse of all is this one (sorry Rick).

It was maybe not a great idea to review this work under the known circumstances, but since I decided to review Rick's work I can't help providing my view about it. The result is not very famous, I'm afraid.

I am amazed to see that one reviewer (with no comment) considered this album as a masterpiece! I would be more on a classic rating as far as this album is concerned. Unfortunately it is one star.
