excellent follow up to the classic debut,dave baldwin is the hired singer this time and he proves to the rest of the guys that they did no wrong in hiring him as he does a commendable job throughout the whole album; as far as compositions go this one is also of a high quality not letting the side down at all.even though i admire dave baldwin's voice since the tradia days i would've loved to see this one sang by ken michaels(what a great voice this guy has!!).dont miss this one it's really good!!

This is all just a bit too polished and clean cut for my liking. Some nice tunes but it's all a bit sterile. Great musicians and voice of pure silk but it comes across that this is no more than a studio project. If you like your AOR polished til you can see your face in it then you'll probably love this. Only better than average for me. 7/10

From: Rycheage Date: July 15, 2004 at 21:15
Polished, yes, but classy to boot. Very good sophomore release where some bands have lost the edge from their debut. Not Departure, though. "Fair Warning" and "100 Midnights" are cutting edge hard rock but most of the tracks are classy AOR and very polished. Nothing wrong with a little polish.

"Believer" is a standout track....check it out!!

Another Perry clone.

Album 3 is their best and this one is a bit better than their self titled debut..."Fair Warning","Believer","100 Midnights","Destiny" & "Don't Need Love" are the best ones...still enjoyable to have...their so far 3 releases are kinda worth having...89/100
