4 stars This is the second album from ANYONE'S DAUGHTER released in 1980. Of their first classic four albums i'd probably rate this as my second favourite. Lots to like here though especially the first two tracks. Again we get a Neo flavour to the music before that genre even really existed.

"Swedish Nights" opens with sounds that build with synths out front. Vocals before a minute. Check out the drum work on the chorus each time. An emotional track for me and I really like the lyrics too. Speaking of lyrics, "Thursday" opens with these words : "Thursday in the library was the first day of my love, the girl that I been always waiting for came dancing through the door". This is so good as the story continues.The drumming again is fantastic and very active and the guitar rips it up after 2 1/2 minutes.This song is so uplifting, it really is. "Sundance Of The Haute Provence" opens with keys as reserved vocals join in. Synths after 1 1/2 minutes. Sounds like mellotron (it's not) before 2 1/2 minutes. A melancholic tune.

"Moria" features these quickly pulsating sounds with vocals. Catchy stuff. "Enlightment" is led by vocals and piano. This is mellow.Some Gilmour-like guitar follows. "Superman" is mid-paced with the vocals and drums standing out. Aggressive guitar before 3 minutes. "Another Day Like Superman" is eventually led by harpsichord-like sounds and fragile vocals. It kicks in before 3 1/2 minutes. Nice. The guitar solos then the synths as they trade off while the drums pound. Vocals are back before 6 minutes. "Azimuth" is a drum show to start then we get a full sound as it blends into "Between The Rooms". Guitar and keys lead then synths arrive before a minute. Vocals follow. It's fuller 3 minutes in.

Barely 4 stars.
