Naff title - sounds like the rejected name for a Beady Eye album.
Production values - these echo the album title's imperative. Does time move backwards? Compared to Bishop's 1978 masterwork "Bish" this record sounds like a collection of rough demos.
All in all a competent selection of songs, but check out the artist's earlier works first. A lot of this sounds like the strummier moments of Calling All Stations by Genesis. Not a bad thing - but at the same time, fascinating for all the wrong reasons. There are also some bland 80s throwback moments on this record.
Standout track "Promise Me The World" is proof, though, that Stephen Bishop's songwriting genius is undiminished.
