4 stars 'The Pull of a Tide' came out in 1993, with Chris Brown now the resident bassist (although Teresa Griffin did play on a few tracks). The songwriting had improved and broadened into new directions. "Who Do YOU Live For" starts with classical guitar but then turns very nearly into a rock song. Strong guitarwork and harmony vocals work well to create a standout track. "Kicking Against Nothing" is another example of the harder edge of L&T with a strong riff and chorus. That being said, this album is just as experimental as the first but songs such as these serve to really emphasis the point. Yet again there are some songs here that point to Richard's later (and current) work with Karda Estra, with "Evolution" being a fine example of his more classical style, albeit with synths and piano. Lorna's angelic vocals and Richard's fine accompaniment making this a real joy. If you enjoy good singing and don't want crashing guitars or complicated prog then L&T provided well structured songs that showed Lorna's voice off to best effect.
