This band is a far cry from being lumped into the mediocre category, though my personal opinion is that a few too many choruses suffer from a reliance on overly formulaic hooks. Compensating for this slight tendency toward the generic are Pete Fry's fiery fret fusillades, which scorch and sizzle with axe-slinging talent that is several notches above what the melodic rock genre typically offers. Minor flaws aside, anyone who picks up a copy of this should be optimistic that they are getting a high-quality helping of melodic hard rock.

The debut was great, but I think that the new one overall may even edge it for me personally. 'Satisfaction' reminds me somewhat of Poisons' Nothin' But A Good Time 'in the chorus (minus point for that Pete ), but apart from that, some really really very good songs throughout. Special note for some great harmonies and of course Pete's excellent playing too. Thumbs up again chaps

Decent album IMHO...no more than that...i don't have their debut but it seems to be better than this one...songs that i liked are "Satisfaction" which is an ok opener,"Over & Over (Again)","At First Sight"(catchy),"Now That It's Over" & "Best Of Me"...recommended album or not is up to you guys but i wouldn't go and kill for it...a matter of tastes i guess...85/100 (still gets a good rate)

excellent 2nd step for FARCRY, in nowadays when not many bands can achieve the 80 s sound ,these guys seem to have the ability,the talent & the will to make it happen once again.i m sure they ve been listening to many bands of the golden era (86-92) as teens.my fav is "now that it s over","at first sight" and " better than this".very good release and excellent guitar work and a feel good vibe
