What a great album this is...I spent half my life deciding whether to buy this and Wild Garden for about £1.50 each at a second hand shop (dumb dumb dumb on my part why wait??). Hard to categorise this for me..lite goth? Dark pop? goth rock? All equal an excellent album with a kind of melancholy feel. This is one of a few albums that I'm too close too to give an objective view. Gothy with pop overtones...think of Cheap Trick in a shroud. Man in a Car is a masterpiece !!!

As Nick C says, these guys are hard to categorize accurately. I'd probably compare them to Enuff Z'Nuff and admit I was quite surprised by this disc. Not entirely my thing, but some nice mid-tempo melodic moments and a cool vibe. Much better than I was thinking and good solid rock n'roll record.

A good melodic rock album that has a british feel to it ala the Quireboys, but doesn't actually sound like them. I too was unsure of this for a while but finally listened to it and was impressed. Some good cuts on here highlighted by the excellent 'Contradiction', 'Passion', and 'Man in a Car'. Not sure how hard this is to find, but worth a listen. See what you think!

Picked this up cheap($5.00)...Don't know what to think of it.... Maybe it takes a while to "get it"...Or maybe my ears have heard SO MUCH ..... we'll see...

Very Good album, vamos con otra de Rarezas que buen disco si Señor con un estilo que recuerdan por momentos a los Little America y Regatta con algunos toques New Wave me encantan bandas asi con ese estilo guitarrero Passion, Mary Goes Round, Love & Kisses From The Gutter, Contradiction, Wilton House lo mejorcito los demas cortes tambien tienen su gustillo asi que si gustan bandas asi de Rock Melodico con ese estilo guitarrero y sus toques New Wave este os sera placentero 8.5/10

Being a hard rocker, and not an AOR fan, but a huge goth fan, I have to say this is hit or miss. The moody songs are pretty good, but the wimpy rock songs just don't get it for me. If the whole album was a tad gothier this would sound much better. Too bad, because the singer seemed to have a good Ian McCullough thing going on when the songs get moody and you can almost get lost in the songs like so many other ethereal 80's bands
