3 stars By 1987 FSB were a very different band indeed. Only two of the members from the early albums were still there (the two keyboard players and vocalists), and the band had moved on from what many would consider prog. Now it sounded as if they had been listening to modern Genesis and indeed some of the sounds on the title song could have come from "Mama". Overall the band had moved far more into an AOR lightweight commercial rock album, but playing the three albums in the reverse order as I did initially is quite a surprise to the listener. Of course they released albums in between this and the second and third, and many more since so it is no surprise that their style has changed but with the electric guitar now much more at the forefront of their sound I was a little bemused. Also, this is an incredibly infectious album full of hooks and while this is obviously a product of the times it is great fun. For the proghead then the debut is the best but for the AOR fan then look out for 'I Love you Up To Here'.
