3 stars 3.5 stars really!! Jan's second album is a logical following of their debut but songs are a tad shorter. This group is a borderline inclusion for they were more of a hard-rock with progressive leanings than a prog rock per se. Also the lyrics did not have special attention from band members but they are sung in very correct and accentless English. they may be compared to Birth Control , Wallenstein's early albums, Uriah Heep etc...

in the usual tradition , this second album opens with a lenghty track (Redskin) with the usual blistering keyboard lines and good guitar heroics. The singing has gotten better due to personel change. Many very correct tracks such as Dandelion, Moving, Waterfall make this an enjoyable album but the peak of the opening track is not reached a second time.

The repertoire CD holds extra tracks from one non-album single and they add up quite nicely to the album content with Daytime and Hangman as very solid tracks. The second single had two album tracks but in a very shortened version: these bonuses hold limited interest. All in all , a good rock & roll album but should we not call this Prog'n Roll????
