Rick's Perspective
In the style of Memories of a Victorian Age this is a very pleasant middle of the road album that again is ideal for that romantic evening. Some lovely sounds and melodies on this album.
Wakey's Verdict
Really worth a listen. I really must organise a romantic evening so I can play it too!!!!!
Little Known Trivia

Mats Landstrom on 24th September 1997 [Other reviews]

A rather "poppy" album. The instrumentals are straightforward and the songs with vocals sound like American radio-rock especially the songs sung by Adam. The sound is also a little too safe for my taste. And there are no "dangerous" musical adventures at all on the album. So, a little uninteresting but not bad is my verdict.
