A fantastic taster for the new album due out next year. I love these FM EPs. They're always great value with a running time longer than many other artist's albums! Credit where credit's due, the guys obviously put as much thought and effort into an EP as they do for their regular albums, even down to the cover artwork and accompanying booklet. With three new recordings, an extended mix and five live recordings this is no mere stop-gap. The title track is a worthy successor to Wildside from 2010's Metropolis. It bodes well for the new album and the extended mix of Only Foolin' is great for chilling out to. The second new track Rainbow's End is quite simply delicious. What to say about Shot In The Dark? It's wonderful to hear the original pre-Ozzy Wildlife version brought back to life and given the full FM treatment, a refreshing change from Ozzy's version, it's a corker! The five live tracks were all recorded at FM's 25th anniversary Indiscreet shows earlier this year and wow! superb quality recordings that instantly transported me back to the emotional night of the London show. Sorry to rub it in if you didn't make it to one of the Indiscreet shows but this EP is the next best thing!

Great Band Live and in the Studio.
Good Studio Songs and Great Live Tracks Here.
Steve Overland just oozes class in his sound and songwriting.
I heard Shot in the Dark in 1982 by Wildlife - Yes Steve Overland and Bro's did this first.
Saw this great Band in Manchester and Metropolis put these guys back on the Map and long I hope they stay.
A great set of guys in it for the love of music that shines through every time.

I bought this on preorder from the FM website, so it's had plenty of listens by now. The new studio tracks are fantastic, but what makes this stand out is their version of Ozzy's A Shot In The Dark. Weirdly, I'm starting to prefer this AOR'd version to the original! No downsides, the live stuff is great too.

The live tracks here are as near as you will get to actually being there. The new tracks on this EP are superb and a great taster for the up and coming album.
The songs are catchy, superbly performed,superbly produced and engineered. I would go as far as to say this release is the best sonically sounding rock material I have heard for a long long time. Punchy, crystal clear and sounding like a "BIG BUCKS" production. A CD you cannot get bored with. 10/10. Buy or die
