|Another stuffy John Wetton AOR CD, this one released as 'Welcome to Heaven' and then as 'Sinister' after some much-needed knob twiddling. 'Welcome to Heaven' has the better version of 'Heart of Darkness' even though the mix is muddier. For the 'Sinister' release, 'Heart' underwent corrective surgery to clean up the mix, but the original chorus melody got altered in the process. So they ruined the best track. Thankfully, worthy AOR tracks, 'No Ordinary Miracle' & 'Second Best' are on stand-by.

|'Heart of Darkness' is a classy slice of melodic rock, the kind I always associate with Wetton-not really progressive rock, but not straight ahead AOR either. 'Say It Ain't So' has an excellent old-school arrangement, with a huge chorus and stabbing keys in classic AOR tradition. 'Silently' is pure AOR. It's worth the price of admission alone-if you really care about AOR, you must hear this. This is without doubt John Wetton's strongest CD since his glory days with Asia.

|Definately not JW's strongest cd since his Asia days, infact the worst of his solo albums by a long mile. Bar a couple of tracks, the songs just aren't there, which was a real surprise, as he normally doesnt have a problem in the songwriting department. Nor does he usually have a problem with the sound of his albums - well he does with this. Must have had a bad day at the office all round doing this one. Thankfully, the next album was back on course.

|It's a little patchy but there are a few decent tracks such as "Heart of darkness", "Say it isn't so", "Where do we go from here" & "Second best". The highlight is probably "Another twist of the knife" but the rest of the album mediocre.
