A NWOBHM album from back in the day. This band came to the fore due to Jannick Gers who went onto Gillan, Bruce Dickinsons band and MAiden. In all honesty there is little here as it has aged badly. The songs are very pedestrian and god only knows why anyone would sub standard demos when the finished product were so amateur.

White Spirit were always more than a NWOBHM band as they had a big Pomp edge to them with keyboards to the fore on alot of their material - think Deep Purple(who they are very reminiscent of on a couple of tracks) Uriah Heep and Styx. Thier debut single on Neat Records 'Back To The Grind' was an excellent Pomp track very Shooting Star like in sound. Have to disagree with some of the above comments especially material wise, as this contains some pompy gems nestled in it's grooves.

'Red Skies','High Upon High' & 'Fool For The Gods' are the more Pomp sounding tracks & are without doubt the best ones on offer. Bear in mind this album was recorded over 25 years ago and on a relatively small budget,the sound is fine and hasn't aged any worse than alot of albums from the time. The bonus disc is a little surplus to requirements, although it does contain the aforementioned debut single and some good B'Sides and 'Watch Out' featuring Robert Hart on vocals from the next line up.

It's pretty cheesey, but fun as hell. Never fails to put a smile on my face. Songs alternate between very Deep Purplish romps and Magnum like pomps. Kinda like Nightwing, but way more fun. It was ok not to take yourself seriously in the NWOBHM. I don't mean to make it sound like a novelty act, because most of the songs are really pretty good. Kinda like Saracen after a few beers!

This is a classic album...old style of course but pure and that is the "likeable" status of it...my faves are 3 of the bonus tracks("Back To The Grind","Cheetah" & "Watch Out")but also these are goodie ones too("Midnight Chaser","High Upon High","Way Of The Kings" & "Don't Be Fooled")...75/100
