3 stars Previous G & C album "L" was really great. Unhappily, with this release duo turned more to pop direction (even if again their pop is different from what you could expect).

This album is more down tempo, less experimental, without any avant elements, but with accent on multi layered sound. As a result, music there sounds very similar to 10 CC releases of similar time. Duo's songwriting abilities are still strong enough there, some you can hear nice melody here and there. Vocals harmonies are usual for them as well. But in all, album sounds a bit faceless, without strong songs and any direction.

Still not so bad listening ( mostly because even from very average material musicians know how to make quality music). But far not so interesting as previous one. Participation of Phil Manzanera and Paul McCartney (on back-vocals on one song) doesn't help much.

My rating is 2,5, rounded to 3.
