Essentially a companion album to 1980's MALICE IN WONDERLAND,once again produced by Jeff Baxter,it pretty much follows the blueprint for the previous release.
Opening with another rocker 'Dressed To Kill',once again think early 80's Quo,superb little opener which along with 'Pop The Silo' & 'Victoria' are the most rockin this disc gets,three fantastic tracks which alongside the superb ballad 'Moonlight Eyes' are the best this album has to offer
The remainder could be classed as bland,inoffensive pop with only the bouncing bass led 'Let Me Be Your Leader/We Are The People' having any redeeeming qualities
This Remastered edition comes with 6 bonus tracks,the forgetable 'Morgantau' and outstanding 'Crazy' while the remaining 4 tracks make up the live ep from 1980 ,the sound quality surprisingly not as good as the live tracks from the same source found on Malice In Wonderland,so a rather mixed bag.
An ok disc but not one you will revist on a regular basis,the big surprise being why Victoria never became a regular feature in the live set
