Unruly Child are back and it has been far too long. Marcie Free sounds amazing and their unique sound remains.
As soon as the opening track starts, you know exactly who it is and the following tunes are just fantastic. The band retains what made them great while still giving us something new; genius!

Part 2:

I've been through the album at least 10 times now; this album has depth of such beauty it beggars belief. Marcie free has a God given talent, with a voice layered with power and emotion; this album is just so sweet.
Song 1: A nod to their previous album and to their fans which gets better with every listen.
Song:2: Reeks of their sound, with an initially James Bond feel, again gets better with every listen.
Song 3: Balls and a killer harmony ridden chorus.
Song 4: A touching balled showcasing Marcie's voice. A killing chorus and OMG these guys are amazing.
Song 5: The song's rhythm reminds me of the 80's computer game Spy Hunter, but the song gives many glorious tingles throughout.
Song 6: The title's name-sake song is a slower grower (not a slow grower, a slower grower, relative to the other songs.) keyboards pound with a stupendous modern overtone, which is just treacle.
Song 7: This is possibly my favourite and at first it reminded me of Hotel California, but that changes quickly. Marcie's vocal sounds truely amazing, and is perfectly matched to this beautiful song; it reminds me of so many other things.
Somg 8: This song is my least favourite, it's dark and pointy, but is still bloody great. If the (personally speaking) weakest song on the disc is great, you can't go wrong.
Song 9: A Capella hoo-hoos start the song, followed by Marc Cohen/Vanessa Carlton-esque sounding piano. This track is a melody extravaganza, with emotional tingles left right and centre, so cool, and sweeter with every listen.
Song 10: Big rhythm to start; a more country feel kicks in, and it sounds GOOD!
Song 11: Melody comes early and continues into...loads more, plain beautiful, love it! Love all of it!
Song 12: A very AOR beginning brings an acoustic camp-fire tune.(A campfire tune performed by geniuses).
Invest in this album, because that is what it is, an investment.

It's a crime to the rock fraternity that 20 years have gone by since the original line up of Unruly Child treated us to their superb blend of classy vocals, hit potential songwriting, and top class musicianship from each member to create a worthy contender for best album of all time. They've done it again!
Each of the 12 songs catchy enough to either sing along or dance to.

M. Free's voice is as emotive as ever throughout. Considering he only has the writing credits for one track outright plus two collaberations with guitarist Gowdy and keyboardist Allison, must serve as a testament to the latter two main songwriters that their skill and passion is so suited to the singers style and capabilities - the magic is as potential as their debut.
At times this album is slightly more laid back than the debut, a few more ballady types in the mix with boppy radio friendly beats and one real Eastern flavoured track that is their answer to Led Zep's Kashmir. They do this particular track with such panache, switching in and out of the Eastern rhythm section and a trademark Unruly Child construction, it leaves you stunned.

Bruce Gowdy has excelled his guitar technique this time, blending his developing slide style so smoothly into the mainstream style it seems we have a truly underestimated name to go along with the other household names of fame.

Guy Allison makes his keyboard work more intricate and diverse this time with atmospheric and digital sounds enhancing each of the tracks in ingeniously unexpected ways, most noticeably in a truly beautiful way on the final track by M. Free.

The rhythm section of Jay Schellen - drums and Larry Antonino - bass are constantly flawless which takes incredible skill considering the songwriting structure of the highest degree, blending smooth sounding passages along with time changes enabling each song to be interestingly unique without losing any cohesion of hit status.

I would never have expected Unruly Child to rival their long loved debut ( which is still a regular on my playlist. ) To surpass that may sound incredible or even impossible. It may be a debate for the future - dare I say until the next one?
Long may Unruly Child reign, they deserve more recognition from the world at large. Their UK appearance at Firefest in Nottingham later this year may address that balance somewhat.

I'm an occasional AOR fan and I can honestly say that I had never heard of Unruly Child. But I had heard of Signal so after researching the connection I gave this a spin.

There are more stand out tracks on here than there are cheesey 80s throw-backs. Some great hooks and the obligatory AOR key changes just where you want them. Definitely worth the investment.
