Normally considered a pop-country-rock outfit, "New Day" represents a bit of a departure for The Stampeders. Leaving relatively "hokey" numbers (like Monday Morning Choo Choo, for example) aside, The Stampeders show their versatility and their ability to play straight ahead Rock and Roll on this album. Highlights include "Ramona", a straight ahead rocker, "It's Your Move", another fast-paced tune and the casually paced "Do It Again". Of particular interest are the songs "In the Shadows" and "Somebody Help Me"--two groove-infused songs that are featured as bookends on the Stampeders "Backstage Pass" Live album. A nice change of pace for a group that is, unfortunately, lost in the annals of Canadian Rock history.
