2 stars It seems musicians themselves felt that they were not making true LUCIFER's FRIEND album and decided to call reformed band LUCIFER's FRIEND II.

Nothing to do with prog here, only mainstream rock and even pop. Positive things are Lawton's voice, strong as ever, and a couple of good songs: new powerful version of ''Ride the Sky'' (originally from LUCIFER's FRIEND first album) and catchy ''Hearbreaker'', sounding like a lost track from URIAH HEEP ''Fallen Angel'' sessions. I can also mention not a bad version of ''Free Me'' and cheesy but memorable ballad ''You Touched Me With Your Heart''.

If you are unfamiliar with LUCIFER's FRIEND music, better start with their masterpiece ''Banquet''. Though some tracks of ''Sumogrip'' can please tolerate Lawton fans.
