From the first few seconds of the blistering opening track "Go On Home" there's no doubt that this album is something different. But against a backdrop of dance beats there is some scorching slide guitar and, arguably, this is partly (in some respects) a modern blues album - "Worry No More", "House Full Of Blues" and "Bring My Baby Back" being other prime examples. "Worry ..." also has a seriously heavy chorus, hinting at what Gary would do later with Scars. The guitar solo at the end of "Lost In Your Love" is exceptional and the pace only drops with "Surrender" - 9 minutes of chill time with a superb extended guitar solo. "Can't Help Myself" (along with "Fatboy") has a very strong dance emphasis but even here the blues lead guitar is much in evidence - along with a hint of Hendrix, referencing the cover of Jimi's "Fire". Another surprise is that after the E-Z Rollers remix of "Can't Help Myself" there is a four minute reprise of "Surrender" - it's the perfect way to end this worthwhile album. It's not Gary's more familiar blues or rock approach and is definitely worth a listen if you like something different on your musical menu!

Not what was expected and heavily criticised by many for not conforming into one standard.
Suppose thats how music evolves. Blistering guitar solo in lost in your love will got lost on nobody and the superb surrender leave those doubting Moore at the time that he still had the speed and style. The rest of tracks are blues-dance beat fusion which considering Moores earlier collessium 2 - G-Force and the later scars he was always going to push the boundaries at times.
Has grown on me over the years with the standouts advised earlier reminding me what we missed.
Saw him tour this album and whilst he played only a few from this album in a live venue they were loud and worked well.
Gary Moore RIP.

If you're a die-hard Rock fan then this may be too different for your tastes - but if you appreciate the versatility that Gary demonstrates through his willingness to play to different styles, then this is well worth buying. Highlights include the tribute to "Fatboy" Slim; "We Want Love", and "Can't Help Myself". Also a worthy rendering of "Fire" showing Gary is just as Hot as Hendrix !!
