3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0
A few very good tracks but that's it
Review written by John Fitzgerald, May 13th, 2005

The Cheap Trick man has come up with a couple impressive tracks here but nothing else to speak of really. "Secret" has Mick on drums (fairly straight ahead on the rhythms but I don't think I could honestly say I would've know it was him unless I was told) and you can hear Stevie good in the right channel in the back up vocals on this mellowish breathy track. "Reactionary girl" is the album's most rocking track with a slight Rolling Stones feel and pretty much what I had expected of Zander here. His cover of "Show me heaven" I find admittedly impressive, I guess it helps having Maria McKee on backing vocals but it has some good and needed guitar phrasings that McKee's original could've used. Her version is probably still better but this one is close behind. Now. the rest of the record I'm not overly crazy about. "I've always got you" is a Tom Petty style jangler, "Jump into the fire" is a ridiculous cover of the Harry Nilsson rocker sampling Free's "All right now" (Paul Kossoff's famous guitar riff) as it's base. "Time will let you know" is a piano, strings & acoustic guitar ballad with an ELO/Jeff Lynne feel, "Boy (I'm so in love with you)" is typical modern day talk/sing dance beat blandness, "Tell it to the world" is an up-ish track which specifically sounds to me this time like Petty's era when he had Jeff Lynne producing him. The throbbing bass helps along another up-ish track, "Emily" but it has a weak hook. "I believe in you" is a slow dragging George Harrison tinged ballad, "Everlasting love" is an insignificant bombastic shouter though "Walkin' shoes" is a pleasant mid tempo closer. Maybe the other mid paced tracks here should've used this more original production style rather than tearing a page from the Lynne/Petty files? In the end, there's a few sparks (as mentioned early in this review) but beyond that, it's cricket city.
