There's a review here somewhere...

Here ya go...75% I gave it. It's Ok but a bit patchy...



This is going to be one of those albums that a reviewer will listen to once and write it off. Yes, as usual Robert Palmer's fascination with including 6 different styles of music on each album has rubbed off here, but if you don't mind a little change in pace during an album, you may really enjoy this. Infact there really is something here for everybody, and seeing that it has been carried off successfully, makes this a good record.
The album kicks off with a smouldering rock track, which is followed by a mid-pacer and a full slice of hard rock with the first single 'She Can Rock It'. What follows is almost a R&B interlude with three smooth modern tracks before launching into the heaviest three songs Power Statio have ever recorded. Just check out 'Dope', an almost industrial style rocker. There is a big ballad, a Hawaian track, a Beatles cover and a throw away bonus track, and it's all over. Enough rock tracks to keep fans of the debut happy, and some smoother numbers for fans to see how far the band can stretch it, and over all a fairly entertaining listen.
