3 stars The debut from Be Bop Deluxe is a very enjoyable album in my ears. Itīs got almost nothing to do with prog rock though. Instead we get a rock/ pop album with some really good guitar playing.

The guitar from William Nelson are really good and I really enjoy the solos that he plays on the album. His vocals are not to my taste but itīs nothing that destroys the album.

The songs are basically pretty normal rock tunes with no big surprises. They are done with conviction though and I enjoy them. There are few surprises though and thatīs what defines this as a pretty average rock album.

The sound quality is very good and the musicians are very good, so itīs professional sounding music. Once again Iīll have to point out that William Nelson stand out as being the exciting thing here. Watch out for him when you listen to the album.

This might not be of much interest for prog rock fans, but fans of guitar dominated rock music ( not hard rock) could get something out of this Iīm sure. A solid 3 star album.

UMUR | 3/5 |
