3 stars I was initially very disappointed with this comeback album, having expected so much more after Days of Future through to Seventh Sojourn. Some of the songs still don't do much for me, like 'Steppin' in a slide zone', and 'Top Rank Suite'; 'The Day we meet Again' is a bit overlong.

'Under Moonshine', 'Had to Fall in Love', 'Survival', and 'One Step into the light' are all good, and I agree that probably the stand out track is 'I'll be level with you', which was searing through my head one day on the London Underground, as I felt highly energised just by recalling it's dynamism.
