From: Rycheage Date: April 29, 2004 at 22:33
Not exactly AOR in the strictest sense of the word but containing enough melodic elements and remnants of influences from yesteryear. In many ways, there are some very 'trippy' sixties moments scattered throughout the album, as well as power pop influences from the current. I gotta say that the accoustic guitar oriented songs are probably the pick of the bunch; they're quite ambient, with lots of keyboard orchestration happening in the background. Not the best I've heard but not too bad either.

Good Power Pop/Lite AOR! totally agree with Rycheage, "City of Sin, Worked Myself to Death & Soldier Song" fav tracks, if this Singer/Album is here then where are... you know the rest, 75/100.

Ummm wasn't my cup of tea at all but it wasn't a bad listening either...Drew's an average singer IMO and that lowers the somehow acceptable songs ...anyway some goodies are "City Of Sin","Worked Myself To Death"(catchy),"Lovers"(nice),"Judicial Breakdown","Visitors From Saturn's Moon" & "Caught In The Act"(for me the best cut of the album)...70/100

Ok cd from the voice of Barakade, kind of a fringe cd, not anything like the Barakade disc, but Drew does have an outstanding voice, but dont be fooled if your looking for a follow up Barakade cd, this is not it.
