The latest solo offering from the Dogs D'amour frontman is a typical affair, acoustical ballads of pure genius. He touches again on familiar subjects; Love, Life and Lust, all told through the haze of cigarette smoke. Recorded on a DAT machine at his home in Barcelona, the sometimes fuzzy sound may put some people off this record, I beleive it adds character, this was recorded to capture that special feeling, that moment, that is so often lost in a recording studio. This is not Tyla's best work, that honour, in my opinion, goes to "Nocturnal Nomad", but it still ranks very highly. Anyone who knows Tyla's work and likes what they have heard, will not be dissapointed.

I'd alays been wondering what had happened to the the Dogs D'Amour. Among all the aerosol glam metal bands of the late 80's to the early 90's, they stood out as more than another Hanoi Rocks rip-off. While Hanoi was great, the Dogs had Tyla. Now music's own Charles Bukowski has made an acoustic album so real, you can hear each string as it's picked and the echo of the vocals, because it's just him and his six-string. And as usual, Tyla's poetic lyrics lace each track with visual beauty and could still go toe-to-toe with any other artist's lyrics and even some works of literature. But there is one major difference to Tyla: the vocals. At first when I heard it, I thought this is Tyla? then I could hear traces of his trademark rasp. Don't get me wrong, the different vocal style is not a bad thing, it shows how Tyla has matured over the years. Do yourself a favor and pick up this record, you owe it to yourself. It's just one man, his guitar and his world, filled with imagery so real, you can almost touch it. When you listen, do as Tyla says in the linear notes and listen to it in the dark and then let it touch you.
