3 stars For their second album Anyone's Daughter left the legendary Brain label and were signed by Spiegelei, another specialized Kraut-Rock label, part of the Intercord Ton GmbH record company.The album, released in 1980, carried only the name of the band as a title and was the last one written in English from the band's early progressive years.

In ''Anyone's Daughter'' the German quartet left out the long, epic compositions for more comfortable and conventional songwriting always with a deep progressive content.Gone are also any kind of ELOY influences and the band recalls heavily the 75-80's GENESIS period, having a strong Proto-Neo Prog approach, while the symphonic tendencies remain present.But, while the songs are more easy-listening, the unique talent of the band forced them to write down some pretty nice light Symphonic Prog.The use of synthesizers is more apparent, the bass grooves become one of Anyone's Daughter's trademarks and some tracks have even some straightforward rockin' tunes.Still the tracks maintain a strong symphonic approach, the guitar leads and solos of Uwe Karpa are more than satysfying and, when needed, the music obtains a more complicated sound with light interplays and great floating synths.One though can not do else than miss the epic arrangements of the band's superb debut.

This is another very good album by Anyone's Daughter, much a product of its time, with the band flirting with the fashion of the time, creating more accesible but still impressive music.Recommended.
