There are not many bands that can release three diverse albums (their first three) in a row such as ‘Harem Scarem’ (AOR), ‘Mood Swings’ (Hard Melodic Rock) and ‘Voice of Reason’ (Dark Melodic Rock). A few of us like all three albums and for me personally that is why ‘Mood Swings’ is such a classic, being the perfect blend of the first and third album. I actually bought all three albums, on a trip to Toronto, in the mid to late nineties without ever hearing a note, based on all the positive feedback I had read on the group. Instantaneously loved the debut but took me a lot longer to appreciate ‘Mood Swings’ and even longer with ‘Voice Of Reason’ but love all three releases now.

Robert pretty much sums up what is great about this album, however, horses for courses, may not be everybody’s cup of tea.

Their recent performance, headlining the Friday night at Firefest, performing the whole of ‘Mood Swings’ was nothing short of sensational and a real personal fan-boy moment for me. Also liked the way that they played the tracks live, in a different order to the album as I can appreciate that the first half of the album is arguably stronger than the second half.

Recently purchased ‘Mood Swings II’ and think that the new arrangements are excellent. The fact that 'Mood Swings' is not certified multi-platinum just goes to show that there’s ‘No Justice’....
