3 stars Nessie's second album is clearly a step downward IMHO compared to their na´ve debut, but it does remain betterthan anything else Belgium had to offerin the symphonic rock during those years. With an artwork sleeve that reminds me of Happy The Man's second album, this sophomore release is clearly in the line of their debut but fails to pick-up where they had left off. The album is not any better, although there are attempts to make something different most notably on Spanish Singer, but it remains little more than a hook with slight Flamenco intinations. But they could not pretending more as they were a "poorman's BJH", but nevertheless having endearing qualities and one of them is clearly the singing sometimes veering towards music hall tradition, but most tracks on side 1 are clearly lacking real personality.

Again, this album, a private release never got a Cd re-issue and the original vinyl is costly. You might want to wait until an artist-friendly label releases it in a 2 albums on 1 CD DEAL; I have Musea in they released so many Belgium groups before.
