After the painfully introspective "Death or Glory", Roy's first studio work in six years washes over you like a bright summer day after a long rainy spring. The album is more optimistic, whimsical, and musically enjoyable than anything Roy has released since the definitive 1975 album, "HQ". Although die-hard Harper fans have hotly debated the place this record deserves when compared with the rest of his catalogue after a few listens the songs stick in your mind. "Drugs for Everybody" (an anti-drug song, actually) should get some airplay, especially with it's pointed Bill Clinton reference: "With Hillary, and sillery, to make sure Bill remembers to inhale". But the album has more than whimsy going for it. The haunting "Dancing All the Night" - a requiem for Roy's mother (who died when he was quite young), the tender "Broken Wing" - perhaps the final word on the break up of his long relationship with Jacqui that tended to make his last album, "Death or Glory" so oppressive, and the straight-up rocker "Angel of The Night", are the best new music from an old rocker to come out since Bob Dylan's "Time Out of Mind".
