5.0 out of 5 stars Stray Debut album, 13 Jan 2007
This review is from: Stray (Audio CD)
One of the greatest debut albums of all time from a bunch of teenagers. The most amazing thing about this album is that it could be released today and not seem out of place, it is timeless. So now it is in CD format and part of The Stray collection and what a collection. This CD starts with the brilliant All In Your Mind running at an astounding 9.21, some bands would not risk a 9 minute opening song on a debut album but Stray knew they were onto a winner.

Taking All the Good things and Around The world In eighty days follow and you get a feel of a concept album in the making. This is followed by a song that is still played live today by Del, Time Machine, now this track is superb and even better live. Only What You Make It follows, great riff, more great lyrics. Move On is a great song wriiten by a great tunesmith, Del Bromham then it is Yesterdays Promises is the seventh song, a Steve Gadd composition and then the last track on the original album, In Reverse/Some Say another long song and full of changes and different pieces of music, a fabulous way to end a brilliant album.

On the CD are five bonus tracks, all very good and the single edit of All In Your Mind, with some slightly different lyrics. This was originally on the Stray Tracks album and Iron maiden did a cover of this on the B side of their Holy Smoke single.....check it out.
