Review written by John Fitzgerald, January 8th, 2005
Billy is on a song here listed on the CD inlay as "A little too far this time" (though it's only listed as "A little too far" inside the CD booklet) as one of two doing background vocals on the track but I wouldn't say I hear him particularly well on it. The song however, is the rocking highlight of the album, a real screamer. My favorite ballad moment is the smooth sultry "Extraordinary girl" though there are a few real nice ballads here like the soulful heartfelt keyboard led "When my dreams come true" and the useful keys and acoustic guitar featured "Old womans face". "Anyone but you" is a bright chiming acoustic opening strummer and "Every dog" kicks in after a slow start and was a good choice for a reasonable facsimile of a "title" track. "Jamie don't love me" is good upbeat pop/rock and would've made a good choice for a single. There are a few musical surprises here like the gospel styled choruses and light electric arrangement on the verses in "Way down deep", the funky/up sounding choruses in the otherwise mid tempo "Proof of love" and the Beach Boys flavored acapella closer "Moon man". Some moments are a little weaker like "Since I lost you" which does have an appealing acoustic guitar & sax direction but the song itself is not as strong as the other ballads mentioned. At the end of the day though, this dog does have it's day here. If you can find it (as I realize it's a pretty tough one to track down), I'd recommend it.
