This is great 70's classic rock in the year 2000. It's great, full of funky rhythms, guitar riffs in one ear and out the other when the next one pushes its way in, bomming drums and pounding beats. And of course, the various sounds and piano are highly commendable and Elton John's appearance is a real class act.
Skin is good, the guitars are great, good effect. Vent, just kind of skip past that one. Why Pt. 2 is the best song onhere and one of their best, nice homage to the 70's. 10 Years Later is really good, showcasing Ed Roland's wonderful voice. Boast is good, another of those repeating words, but rocking out thought, because the words don't matter, the music does, kind of songs. Turn is good, a nice little ballad-ish tune, I enjoy the reformation it portrays.You Speak My Language just thumps. Perfect Day is great, just great, I'm so glad Elton John decided to tag along. After All and Over Tokyo are gentle and subtle kind of tunes, though very stylistic. Happiness is the guns a blazin' play out that reminds you about the beginning of the album, so then you hit repeat and play it all over again. It gets my highest recommendation.
