At last, the second of Nils two albums for Backstreet/MCA Records has resurfaced on CD and not before time. 10 tracks which are as rocking as anything Nils offered before, but at last the lyrical bitterness and misoginy has disappeared to be replaced with a worldy wiser style.
Nils keeps up a tradition of covering heroes, and this time it's 'It's All Over Now' which stomps around well. The highlight however are mostly on the first half of the disc, 'Across The Tracks', 'Into The Night' and 'Daddy Dream' all classics (the latter is a great in car song), second half is a bit weaker, but ends on another classic closing Nils song (much like all his previous studio albums), the guitars wailing away in 'Deadline' are superb.
The liner notes reveal the tightness of the band came from lengthy rehearsals of the album tracks, and both Andy Newmark (drums) and Kevin McCormack (bass) have graced later records by Nils.
