10 years in the making, this cd doesn't convince me. It sounds like a compilation-album, there's too many different drums- and guitarsounds. Of course Erik is great on the keys, John is a great vocalist and the guitarsolos and drums all are great, but here and there the drums are programmed. It looks like not all the musicians were available for the last 10 years, so Erik and John played all the remaining instruments. It's not a bad album, but GPS sounded more like a band. On the other hand, it's great to have new songs of John Payne to listen to. At least it's way better than the collection progrock-covers he released a little while back. I rate it: 6,5 but maybe it will be a 7 or higher in due time.

Cool Album! Ex-Asia vocalist John Payne does a mighty fine job🖒I love the track listing as it has quite a few goodies that I really like here. Some of the highlights from the album that I like are "Brother In Arms" "Strange Ways" "Time Waits For No One" "A Sorrows Crown" and "Fourth Of July" If you're a fan of Asia you'll love this album! 🤘😎🤘

Nice Prog/AOR release with interesting cuts in the shape of # 2,3(nice),4,5,6 & 7(nice)...Payne is a master in doing this kind of stuff and joined by a staff of great musicians you tell me.83/100
