This is the first CD with Phil Lewis (vocals) and Mick Cripps (guitar/keyboards) since 1994’s Vicious Circle. I see a return to the original sound that made them famous in the 80’s. This has always been one of my favorite bands. From the title track, to the last track this album rocks. I personally recommend “Beautiful” and “Spider’s Web” which is very similar to “Never Enough” on Cocked and Loaded. Lewis‘ singing and Gun‘s guitar playing, as well as the rest of the bands playing, is very strong throughout the CD.
Old and new fans should like this record. I give it two thumbs up!
