"Military madness" makes it worthwhile
Review written by John Fitzgerald, November 25th, 2004

Dave Mason is listed on this album as playing "electric guitar" on the opening (and best) track here, "Military madness" which is a pleasant light piano chunking shuffle. This catchy sing a long has tasty wah wah phrases from Mason throughout the piece and this album is worth it for this track alone. As for the rest though, "Better days" starts out as a piano and vocal only track but then it turns into a shouting mid tempo acoustic thumper. "Wounded bird" is an effective acoustic guitar and vocal only track, "I used to be a king" has slight country undertones but it remains pop sounding in a slow to mid tempo vein, but it doesn't have a great hook. "Be yourself" is a vocal, piano & acoustic guitar strummer on the verses but it's a choral swayer on the chorus sections (which are the worst parts of the track). "Simple man" is a strings/violin, piano & vocal doodle but it's not particularly memorable. "Man in the mirror" is a waltzing slow country croon on the verses but a mid tempo chirper on the chorus parts. "There's only one" is an organ featured slow to mid tempo choral sweller and "Sleep song" is a peaceful acoustic guitar, strings and vocal ditty. "Chicago" is a dramatic stomping shouter which returns us to the strong "Military madness" commercial sound (but this track isnt as good as MM is) as is the closing insignificant repetitive chorus chanting one minute piece "We can change the world". There are a few good tracks sprinkled inside this album though that wins it some points but "Military madness" will be an instant favorite for you should you purchase this platter.
