This solo album from Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr is without doubt better than 90% of the dross out
there. Superb songs and production, make this stand out, with each track revealing hidden depth, with
repeated plays. No point naming standout tracks,as the whole album is incredibly strong, with sublime
melodies, and Jim's distinctive vocal's. The lyric's are back to his best, with cryptic, hidden meanings
similar to early Minds.

I would never have thought he would do a solo album as good as this, and he seems to be flowing with ideas
at the moment. Sadly apart from Simple Minds fans, the album will probably be ignored, but he should take pride
in the fact, that the people who do buy it, will be musically educated, and in years to come, will be
looked upon as being a minor classic. Thanks Jim for one of the year's best suprises.

Dare I say that it could be better than Graffiti Soul? But then it might be unfair to compare it to the last Simple Minds album as this is Jim Kerr going solo with Jez Coad on guitar and producing.
On some of the tracks the sound is reminiscient of early Simple Minds (Think, Sister Feelings Call).
Overrall, the album is full of energy: Mel Gaynor beating out the drum sounds, atmospheric guitars with a nostalgic 80s sound and soaring synths.
The most accessible tracks are the single: "Shadowland" and the free download on the Lostboy website: "Refugee" but with repeated listening you can start to appreciate the other tracks.
Definitely something for Simple Minds fans and anyone who enjoys a blend of classic 80s with the contemporary.

This has surely been a long time coming, and what a fantastic debut album. Let's be honest, Jim could sing the phone book and make it sound good! I wouldn't expect anything else from the singer of SM who have not really released a bad album. In fairness the last 3 tracks are not the best on the album, but I could not even think about knocking this down to 4 stars. In parts this album is very similar to graffiti soul which was released the year earlier, also shades of neapolis in here too! I just can't see the man losing his touch! Well recommended!

I love Simple Minds from New gold Dream to present. I knew Jim Kerr's single project would not disapoint me. This venture is maybe a bit self indulgent on his part, but why not. I think SM early sound can be heard, plus a Bowie influence, but also SMs distinct sound and Jims poetic, hidden depth lyrics. I cannot say if others will enjoy this, but I would think, loyal SM fans certainly will. Long live Simple Minds. Well done Jim.

I have been a fan of simple minds for years, they are one of the few bands I always return to. I fell out of them in the late 90,s but came back to them with black and white. I was so pleased when Jim kerr brought this album out and to say I was suprised by how strong it is would be an underestimation. Nail through my heart and shadowlands are classics and I love driving to this album and would recommend it to all Simple Minds fans.

The first solo project of the Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr is a very good surprise for me, even if I knew it wouldn't be a bad one.
Every track is very good, and many are possible hits, like "Remember Asia", "The Wait", etc...
This album is excellent, brilliant, and it confirms that Jim Kerr is in a very good mood for the moment, following the excellent SM album "Graffiti Soul".
Great job, Jim!

This might be a grower.

However, what is disappointing on the first 2, 3 listens maybe, is how little jumps out and immediately embeds itself in your head, every SM album has done this for me, even the 'perceived' weaker efforts. "Shadowland" is the only one.

Opener "Refugee" revisits some of the melody and driving vibe of 2005's "Stay Visible", while the single "Shadowland" is a very good song, if a tad familiar, it would not be out of place on "Graffiti Soul" should you so wish to 'playlist' it there. Other songs seem to revisit ideas and riffs from the recent Minds catalogue; "Black & White 050505" and "Graffiti Soul", there's no real solo imprint on the music [yet], perhaps that is to be expected as it takes time for a singer to tear himself free of his band and it's 'signatures', although having said that I don't hear much, sans voices, of Genesis in "Peter Gabriel I or II" or the Velvets in Lou Reed's "Transformer" & "Berlin", maybe it's a sign of whom you coose to work with and JK has chosen Coad, who did the last 2 SM records.. however..

There's a naughty steal from Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" on "She Fell In Love With Silence" and on "The Wait Pt II" JK borrows wholesale the outro melody from his own "Alive & Kicking" towards the end. "Nail Through My Heart" is basically a contemporary and rather excellent rewrite of a 1980 B-side entitled "New Warm Skin", a practice Le Minds have done before with "Theme For Great Cities'91" & "Ghost Dancing" [I Travel] It so happens this track is also my particular favourite along with the oddbod "Soloman Solohead" because they veer so far from recent Minds music. A sign of things to come? Hope so.
